Several months ago in an office based in the South of Glasgow, Evne and Eventual crossed paths. There were sparks from the beginning and thankfully, they weren’t from the headset.
Christina, one of the three brains behind Evne, ventured over to our desk and picked up the HTC Vive. Transported to another world, Christina was instantly immersed. Little did we know, this was the beginning of the Evne and Eventual collaboration.
But wait, who is evne?
Christina and Melissa studied Biomedical Sciences at the University of Aberdeen. During their studies, they both discovered that a career in the lab would not necessarily suit them. They had natural strengths within other areas. Christina found she was a natural at networking. Melissa discovered that project management suited her better – with people rather than cells though.
To solve this, they decided to channel their strengths into a side-project. This saw the beginnings of the student-led conference, LEVEL-UP! After graduating, they joined forces with their friend Giancarlo. He is currently studying at Bournemouth University and together they have set up their company, “evne”.
Christina, Melissa and Giancarlo pride themselves in helping students develop their personal and professional skills. And now, they’ve added a virtual twist.
It all starts with a virtual brick.
With great feedback from their real-world events, the Evne team are excited to incorporate experience based learning into their programme through the use of virtual reality.
The past few weeks have seen the beginnings of Evne’s virtual world. We’ve had a great time designing their environment and it’s fair to say, Evne’s energy is definitely infectious! Also, their imagination knows no bounds – which makes our job so much more fun!
The next stage on our journey together is the most exciting part! With Evne’s virtual blueprints finalised, building is now officially underway for their virtual world.
