Indie Game Awards Emcee
Cyril Guichard started his career in traditional advertising, working in agencies such as Leo Burnett, Havas, and Saatchi and Saatchi before shifting to digital advertising in the early 2000s.
Cyril’s skill in energizing web content with game mechanics -– along with a specialization for working within the tight constraints of heavily-legislated industries — led to a series of prize-winning campaigns for Diageo, Hard Rock Casinos and Hotels, and Camel tobacco products, among others. Parallel to his advertising career, Cyril nurtured his life-long love of gaming by producing independent titles. He has created more than 40 games, both individually and in collaboration with others, including the Outpost franchise that attracted over 17 million players, and more recently, the Oculus Go! VR game Theta Legion. He is the co-founder of Garage Collective, an independent game studio.

His courses run the gamut from coding to game design to portfolio development and he strives to help young designers and artists pursue careers with major studios and indie start-ups alike.
