Andrea Phillips is an award-winning transmedia writer, game designer and author. Her book, A Creator's Guide to Transmedia Storytelling, will be published by McGraw-Hill in June 2012.
Her work includes a variety of educational and commercial projects, including Floating City with Thomas Dolby, The Maester's Path for HBO's Game of Thrones with Campfire Media, The Drunk and On Drugs Happy Funtime Hour Quest with Stitch Media, America 2049 with human rights nonprofit Breakthrough, Routes Game for Channel 4 Education, the independent commercial ARG Perplex City, and The 2012 Experience for Sony Pictures. These projects have variously won the Prix Jeunesse Interactivity Prize, a Broadband Digital award, a BIMA, an IVCA Grand Prix award, the Origins Vanguard Innovation Award, and others. Two of her projects have been nominated for BAFTAs but not won. Thanks to that and her outsized competitive spirit, winning a BAFTA has become one of her paramount goals.

She has spoken at SXSW, MIT Storytelling 3.0, the Power to the Pixel/IFP Cross-Media Forum, ARGfest, DIY Days, and FITC Storytelling X.1, among others.
