Head of Creative & Design @ Illfonic
Jared is an industry vet. As a child, Jared would wake up with ideas for comics, stories, and video games. He was never without a notebook and pencil, often getting in trouble in school for “doodling.” Today he can credit that “doodling” for his successful 20+ years in the games industry. He started his career as an artist working on Drakan: Ancients Gates and moved into Level Design on projects like F.E.A.R. and more. He continued to work on multiple titles over the years and became the Creative Studio Director at Zombie Studios, known for Blacklight: Tango Down. From there he spent a few years lending his expertise in the esports arena at MLG. Now as the Head of Design and Creative at IllFonic he is excited to flex his imagination and years of designing to create immersive game worlds for everyone.
