Mark is an extremely talented motion graphics designer and animator. He was a senior member of the 'Archer' After Effects team, and the go-to person for the entire studio as far as opening title sequences and other motion graphics treatments were concerned.

My pathway into title design & animation began on the FX series Archer. For the shows fifth season, episodes 2 through 13 would be known as Archer: Vice and required a whole new title sequence to match the shows exciting new direction. I had the good fortune of being the only motion designer in the studio, so the task of remaking it fell onto my lap.
The original Archer title sequence was created by the Art Director as a rough placeholder for the pilot episode, but to his endless dismay it stuck around for four seasons. Before I tackled Archer: Vice, I pitched a bold plan of making a polished version of original title sequence from the ground up. The idea was that we would use it for the first episode of season five, then as a solid foundation for Archer: Vice and future re-designs. It was gamble as I would now be faced with creating two title sequences with no additional time or resources. Ultimately, the gamble paid off and I would play a key role in re-designing the title sequence for each subsequent season. My work in this field has been featured in Art Of The Title and pop culture outlet Uproxx.
