Sophia George is a 23 year-old Bafta Award-winning computer games designer. After studying Games Art and Design at Norwich University of the Arts, she now runs her own company – Swallowtail Games. Tick Tock Toys, her first commercial venture into the world of gaming, won her the ‘Ones to Watch’ Bafta Award and received over 100,000 downloads within the first week of its release. She is currently Designer in Residence at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
