Meet the Interns

Leti Arts as part of our commitment and passion to train and mentor upcoming artists, illustrators and game developers runs internship programs, as often as our work schedule permits us.

We believe in providing a platform for personal growth and to demystify and remove any barriers to dreaming big about what you can achieve right from Ghana.

We would like you to meet our current crop of interns as they come near the end of their internships. We had a total of three (3) interns this internship period, which run from June to Mid-August. Let’s meet the interns.

Samuel Agyeman

Institution: Ashesi University
Course: Computer Science
Personal Goal: Become better at 3D Design and Illustration within a game development context

Samuel at Leti Arts
Samuel wants to be part of the creative side of game development through 3D design. However, Samuel during this internship, has had to move out of his comfort zone and work primarily with our Creative Director on a project for a third party client.

The project required him to do illustrations and game artwork by tracing and colouring in-game elements and background scenes for the project from existing images or photographs. This included people, buildings and other in-animate objects. The project also taught him team work and organization which are essential skills in the creative industry.

Samuel also worked with the Online Marketing Lead and created graphics for social media content, especially themed content around Ghana’s matches for the just ended 2014 World Cup.

Here is a sample of some of the artwork Samuel has produced during his internship.

Prince at Leti Arts
Prince as a graphic design student has had the opportunity to learn more about digital art and illustration under the guidance of our Creative Director, Eugene Kwame Akoto.

The main project he has been working on is a game for a third party client. The project has allowed him to explore what it means to be a creative director in a game development environment and the relationship between the design team and the programming team.

It has also allowed him to discover new ways of illustrating and colouring digital artwork including tracing from existing images, tracing from photographs for unique poses and illustrating using a Wacom tablet. Team work and organization are additional essential skills he has been exposed to as part of his internship.

Here is a sample of some of the artwork Prince produced during his internship.
