Tancred is Studio Creative Director at Kuju's London studios, responsible for overseeing the direction and quality of the creative aspects of the company's titles ? game design, artwork, audio and writing. Prior to this he was Project Creative Director on Battalion Wars 1.
Writing games for the BBC Micro and Commodore Vic-20 as a child, he worked in television after University, moving on after a few years as the industry wasn't proving enough opportunity for direct creativity.
His return to games came in the mid-1990s. After taking evening classes in Adobe Photoshop and Premiere along with and various other creative software packages, he answered an advertisement in The Guardian for a Designer. Learning Softimage on the job, and teaching himself myself 3DStudio Max, Tancred's roles have since alternated between art and design, or positions which provided the chance to do both.
