Hi! I'm Luke - the face behind Meikai Creativia!
I am a sound designer with a specialism in the game industry with over four years of professional and academic experience. Working in both linear and dynamic formats, I am adaptable to various design languages and can design sound ranging from the ultra-realistic to the far-out abstract in a range of audio formats, including Ambisonics and Dolby Atmos. I also dabble in a bit of music composition as a personal hobby and can also work with a number of other disciplines outside of games including film and TV.
Holding a BA(Hons) in Digital Games (Audio), this opportunity has given me the necessary experience for working in the games industry right from the outset. Furthermore, my specialism in audio means I posses the knowledge of production pipelines from inception to implementation into the major game engines currently on the market.
In addition to this, I am a fully qualified FE lecturer which has equipped me with the transferrable skills necessary to work in the games industry, including, but not limited to that of communication and presentation, leadership and teamwork, as well as organisation and time-management.
Why Meikai Creativia?
I've always been fascinated by the Japanese language and culture. In Japanese, Meikai (me-k-eye) translates to the word 'clarity' which is the central ethos around me and my brand. In music, clarity is what we, as musicians and consumers of music and sound alike, strive for and desire. In business, clarity, or lack thereof, can be the deciding factor between positive and negative relationships between the client and the brand. As I hope to provide clarity in both aspects of music and business, it seemed only fitting to use this word as part of my brand. The 'creativia' part, you ask? Well, that's a totally made up word loosely based around the Spanish word for creative.
Admit it. You came here for the dogs.
I love animals! I have two dogs - a Husky crossed with a Japanese Akita named Storm and a Corgi named Biskit (spelt with a K). Storm loves her hugs, and Biskit loves his belly rubs. I also have a cat named TC who I'm pretty sure is plotting my demise.
