Why hello there! I'm Katie "Vivifx" Lucas and I like to think of myself as a creative swiss-army knife . Over my eight years in the industry I've worked professionally and personally on small nimble game teams where I provide a variety of skills, honing my craft to be the perfect tool for the job.
Here's some of the skills I bring to the table:
✨ I'm a game designer who has worked primarily in mobile.
✨ I'm a 2D Artist and Animator
✨ I'm a production manager trained in Agile worflows.
✨ I'm a storyteller - My favorite work is always the kind where I get to bring all my skills together to craft beautiful and haunting narratives.
Currently, I am the Director of Creative Services at PlayQ. There I oversee a team of game designers, artists and animators and direct them towards producing small hyper-casual gameplay experiences. I also manage all of our sprints, and work directly with UA to set our overall marketing strategy.
I am also the Head Bread of Thoughtful Bread. Our team there is working on our first title - a narrative investigation game about a Witch and Crow breaking curses in a world under the control of magic captilism. On this title I am the head designer, and Art Director.
I am also an Adjunct Professor of Game Design at Loyala Marymount where I teach undergrads how to fail fast, fail smart and foster a beautiful relationship with documentation. (They also make a game or two along the way there)
When I'm not doing my creative thing you can find me reading tarot cards, scuba diving or relaxing with a cup of tea, my partner and our two incredible cats.
