TOA’s Multimedia Alumni—Tsuqi Hoh—Creative Director of Multimedia People (MMP), Singapore along with Tan Cher Suen, its Chief and Founder, met with our Multimedia diploma and degree students in a sharing session entitled 'Designing for Narrative Spaces'.
Narrative space is defined as an interactive space with audiences. It’s on this basis that MMP was built upon. As one of the earliest pioneers of interactive media industry in Singapore, MMP was involved in the design and development of numerous successful interpretive galleries in Singapore since its establishment in 1995.
The company has won many awards including the Promising SME500 (2014), Bureau International des Expositions: BIE silver award (Pico) (2012) and USA Exhibitor Magazine's Expo 2012 Award: People's choice award for best interactive pavilion (Pico) (2012) with their most notable projects being the Gardens by the Bay experiential gallery, KidSTOP - Movie Workshop’s multimedia installations and World Expo, Yeosu, Korea’s experiential gallery.
After introducing their company background, its background and their portfolio, Hoh and Tan listed an extensive and exciting career path available for our multimedia and advertising students. Hoh, taking her own experience as an example, narrated her journey upon graduation 13 years ago at The One Academy and how she chased her dreams and finally landed in Multimedia People in our neighbouring country.
Of course, success wasn’t possible without her team and adopting a team spirit is vital in this industry because the multimedia teams work closely together with interior designers, lightning designers and technical engineers. Involving different people with different expertise and meeting a tight deadline from time to time, reaching a mutual understanding when accomplishing a project is without question.
The MMP also conducts job recruitment interviews and did an external assessment on our Multimedia final year diploma students. With their extensive experience in this industry, their input was invaluable to our students who could further intensify their learning in the evaluation session.
Thank you for being an inspiration to all of us, Hoh, and may we continue to learn from each other and continue to improve ourselves in our self-development and in our art.
