In this series, UKIE will be telling the ‘untold stories’ of the games sector and shining a light on the many women who helped contribute to the UK games industry the past thirty years. We’re joined by Chantal Beaumont who has worked in the industry for over 20 years and is currently positioned at Sumo Digital.
30 Years of Play: Tell us who you are, what you do and a little bit about your career in the industry.
Chantal Beaumont: My name is Chantal Beaumont, more often known as Chan. I’m a Graphic Designer on Sumo Digital’s Concept Team where I help visualise early game concepts, taking written and verbal ideas and making them into something that people can see. These images form part of the pitch process and early game prototypes.
