Before joining Frontier Developments (and before I even knew of an opening there!) I actually purchased the early access for Planet Coaster. I’ve always admired the art and craft that goes into theme park design, whether it be the more modest parks of the UK or the masterful Universal and Disney Parks. Having such a keen interest, I feel incredibly lucky to have made a contribution to the development of Planet Coaster.
Joining late on in the development cycle, it was my responsibility to rejuvenate the UI to carry it from early access, to full release. I started the process with a series of presentations outlining my ideas for the direction, once approved, these were turned into style guides.
Not all my ideas got into the final release, but I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge and felt pleased with my contribution.
