I worked with Apptoyz on a number of game applications ranging from 'gun' games and arcade classics, to fishing simulators and virtual pets. During these projects I was responsible for a number of tasks from initial concept and gameplay design, to final asset creation, UI & HUD design, animation and level design in both 2D and 3D.

Alongside the apps production I was also responsible for creating concepts for product pitches, GDDs and wireframes to be presented to third party companies and license hodlers such as Lucas Arts, Mr Men, TMNT, Disney, Marvel and Sanrio. I also created animated idents for TV advertising, printed design layout for assorted retail catalogues and graphical assets for web as well as a couple of physical product concepts. I was also responsible for liasing with third party clients such as Disney in regards to branding and style consistency as well as gameplay concepts and planning.
