Youth research agency and games development studio, Dubit has bolstered its team with two new appointments.
Adam Woodgate (pictured left) joins the firm as research manager. He arrives from BBC Worldwide, where he spent 20 years in research working across roles in publishing, radio and television.
Over his time at BBCWW, he worked on projects for clients including Fisher-Price, Cbeebies Weekly, Lonely Planet, BBC Worldwide's channels and, most recently, youth and children's app development for Immediate Media.
Meanwhile, Richard Boon (pictured right) arrives as games writer. His previous roles have seen him work on projects for Nintendo, Sony and THQ. Boon joins the development studio as it places added emphasis on the importance of narrative in its mobile games and virtual worlds.
"Adam's appointment and publishing expertise comes at a time when we are seeing increased demand for our services from the publishing industry, as many come to terms with the impact digital has had on their audience," said Ian Douthwaite, Dubit CEO.
"With Dubit being recognised for its virtual world development, Richard's appointment will help us to continue to offer even more engaging narrative in the games we develop for our clients."
