Cephas Howard

Innovative British Game Designer & Inventor, Design Manager at LEGO, Creative Lead LEGO Games at LEGO System A/S

Cephas Howard is a game designer at the forefront of current trends. He had always dreamed of working for LEGO. The opportunity at LEGO arose at a time when Cephas was actively looking to self-publish two of his own games. He had quotes from manufacturers, he had a website, he had business cards; and then he saw an advertisement for the job at LEGO and events took an entirely unexpected turn. He applied for the position and landed the job based on his past portfolio, his enthusiasm and ideas, and what was perhaps a true meeting of minds with his future bosses.

"...have a belief in yourself and your ideas, and the ability to convince others and make believers of them also" Cephas Howard
