Romane and Mariia Souchko have been working with 3D technologies over the last ten years by using 3D in various areas.

After building a successful business in France and working for large companies in Europe (Nestle, Yahoo, PwC, TechCrunch, TradeShift), they moved to Canada and set up Playground Creative Agency.

Today Playground work with the small and medium business, as well as a large organization and help them to communicate better their ideas by using 3D in all areas of marketing and promotion. 3D modelling for architects and interior designers, integration of 3D in web and graphic design, video production and motion design…. the possibilities are endless.

What Happens at Hoist?
Learn from experts in the business. The first half-hour will be a lesson from a pro on the topic of the day – App basics, coding (Android/IOS), and more.

Enjoy some pizza with your new friends.

Build or design something, apply what you just learned – it’s a mini hackathon. Work in a group or on your own to create the next big product or service.

Reflect and discuss the day: what did you find challenging, or exciting? Chill out and talk to your pals new and old about what you created.
