Alexa Gruber

Game Art Sophomore – 2024

Hello, my name is Alex Gruber. I’m a sophomore transfer student from ICC, where I got my Associates in Arts, and I am a Game Art Major here at Bradley. I’ve been invested in art for a majority of my life now, and I’ve grown particularly fond of digital art, though I still love doing traditional art as well. My hope is to find a career with art and design in the game industry because I am very passionate about games, but I am always open to exploring other options that may drive me to continue being creative.

Theia: a distant exoplanet, home to a number of diverse alien lifeforms, is now on the brink of ecological collapse. However, Gaia Enterprises is on a mission to revive the planet and has chosen you to join their expedition. You will create your very own unique and vibrant plant life to grow on Theia- be it a tree, a flower, or a new type of growth!

In augmented reality, explorers will be able to customize their own plant to their liking with thousands of possible combinations. Before leaving the planet, each explorer will be able to take home a photo of their creation, so that they can remember the impact they made.
