DALLAS — New media creative studio Flight School recently added Ruby Wang as a concept artist. An integral part of Flight School’s creative team, Wang creates new designs for characters, environments and assets on a wide array of projects. She also contributes to story development for the studio’s virtual reality and animation projects.
Flight School represents the combination of the emerging tech team from Reel FX Creative Studios and the creative leadership of Moonbot Studios. Most recently, Wang was the art director on Island Time, an in-development VR arcade game, as well as an artist on projects for clients that include Dell, Chevy and Starbreeze VR. Prior to joining the Flight School team, she interned with Tonko House, working on the Annie Award-nominated series Pig: The Dam Keeper Poems, based on the characters from the studio’s Academy Award-nominated short film. Additionally, she was an illustrator for Eric Miller Animation Studios, contributing promotional art for their animated Web series, Bink, and concept art for future projects. She also contributed concept art to Sonder, an animated short in production at Soba Productions.
“Ruby is a wunderkind,” says Flight School chief creative officer, Brandon Oldenburg. “Her artistic talent, combined with her speed and proficiency, is unmatched. Everything she touches turns to gold here at Flight School. Her brilliance shines brightest when she takes a rough sketch of an idea and turns it into a vibrant world full of character. Our studio is incredibly lucky to have her on the team. She is on her way to becoming a full fledged doyen of storytelling in virtual reality, gaming and emerging technologies.”
