My Stakeholder Research

  • 5 min read

To understand who would benefit most from my research, I investigated various stakeholders working in the game industry. As mentioned in a previous post, from a product perspective my research would mostly affect 3D modeling software and repositories, but the people it would mostly affect work in game studios or other creative enterprises. Here are some of the archetypes I found.

  • 7 min read

My research comes is at interesting intersection in that product-wise it would impact 3D modeling software and those in that industry who make it, but a much larger number of affected people would be those using said software in the video game development industry (and theoretically in other media industries such as animated films and marketing). Thus in my market research I investigated both sectors but for products focused on 3D modeling software and model repositories.
