Marc is a designer who specialises in the production of games, elearning content and educational books, particularly for kids.
For over 20 years, Marc has worked in tandem with instructional designers and developers and has a proven ability to get a project over the line with that vital professional ‘finish’. He also has experience in managing large teams of artists, having provided art design and production management on a number of major international projects.
Marc began his career as a senior designer in Riverdeep and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, working on the highly visual, interactive Destination Math and Reading products. Since then, Marc set up his own design company (Wee Gem) and has worked on a number of projects for the BBC, RTE & Playfirst that have taken him to London, Bucharest, Delhi, San Francisco and Beijing. He has been Creative Director in a number of start-up educational companies and game companies, including EMPGI and Pharma. He was a lecturer in Game Design at Pulse College, before joining Highwood in 2017.
Marc has expertise in a wide variety of areas of design, such as e-learning, game design, user interface, UIX, pitch writing, illustration, animation, character design, logo design, and much more. Everything you see on screen, basically.
His creativity, problem-solving skills and expertise in development are invaluable to any project. When Marc isn’t busy running production, he is up at dawn taking dynamic photos of the sunrise or focusing his imagination into his own children’s books.
