Episode #14 A Taste of Spark with Ross Wakefield

On this week’s 14th episode of A Taste of Spark, we had the absolute pleasure of speaking with multi-talented creator, Ross Wakefield.  With a degree in interior architecture, Ross has been designing shops, cinemas, restaurants (to name a few) for the past 12 years, and is now looking to disrupt the industry by integrating augmented reality.  Working as a freelancer, Ross uses AR to drive people into shops by providing a brand new, interactive experience for customers. He also has a lot of expertise developing Spark AR for clients and other agencies.  He will soon set up his own design agency not just for retail, but for augmented reality as well.

Ross explains the benefits of implementing AR into retail shops.  The future is more sensory experiences and customer-scenic marketing, less about shelf life.  He also chatted to us about integrating AR into smart promotions, such as cosmetic brands, where you can automatically share your experience on social media, enhancing engagement and brand awareness. 

A brand experience increases brand loyalty!

Episode #13 A Taste of Spark with Marcus Benisty

On this week’s episode of A Taste Of Spark, we had a great chat with french creator Marcus Benisty - who is currently based in Paris!  Marcus works hand in hand with his girlfriend, building his agency and creating filter effects for people and brands. The former social media strategist is self taught, always learning and eager to share his knowledge.

His advice when getting started: you need to have visible guidelines for your clients.  For example, by creating a filter book and making a portfolio or instagram page of your work, you can easily showcase your talents, thus gaining more interest in getting hired.  Keeping up the consistent work is key!

Make sure to tune in below to see Marcus’ top filter picks (two are his own!) and his take on starting off the new world of AR.

Episode #12 A Taste of Spark With Luke Hurd

On our 12th episode of Spark AR, we had the chance to speak with the insanely brilliant Luke Hurd who is currently based in Kansas City, Missouri.  Luke has been in the marketing world for a while now, so his knowledge is grand. He started building websites in 1995 and currently works for an advertising agency.  He works hand in hand with brands, helping them use new technology. He got into AR by helping build filters for Snapchat, then moved into FB a year and a half ago to reach a wider audience.  Through Spark, Luke interacts with other developers, and has created tutorials to help beginners get started. Through his tutorials, he helps those with no former knowledge of the technology create filters.

Luke believes people are excited to work with others to build filters - which helps bring people together.  There is a whole world out there for Spark to live, and we need to tap into an audience outside of the US to see AR grow.  We can help lift up other countries in the world through our technology advances. This is the new forth front for broadcasting.
