Episode #8 of A Taste Of Spark with Marc Wakefield

On our 8th Episode of Taste of Spark, we had the pleasure of speaking with Marc Wakefield, a badass creator all the way from London!  He has been working hand in hand with Spark AR for two years now, and also works for himself, making AR effects for a plethora of clients.  This former recruiter/graphic designer is self taught —through tutorials, mentors, and learning by example.

Rather than working with an agency, March is a one man show - this means he has more freedom and even more direct relationships with clients. His business has a personal touch.

Marc’s experience and expertise is top notch.  He has worked with big clients such as U2, with the band’s filter used every night on their tour. (190 million impressions on FB!)  He also works with smaller brands, and is an amazing mentor/example for beginning creators.

In general, Marc would like to see Facebook AR progress into eyewear, and he encourages everyone to keep helping each other out.  Not only does this create a more tight knit community, but helps bring the world closer together.s

Marc, you rock!
