Interview with Chris Akesson -

The Vanguard official site has been updated with an interview with Chris Akesson, Art Lead for Vanguard.

Hi Christian! Thanks a bunch for taking the time out of your busy day to introduce yourself to the Community. Easy and quick questions first! Where are you from? How long have you lived in San Diego?

I am originally from Sweden and have lived in San Diego since 2001.

What is your official title here at SOE and how long have you been a part of the Vanguard team?

My official title is Art Lead and I have been part of the Vanguard team since end of 2002.

What did you do before coming to work here?

Before coming to SOE working on Vanguard, I was working for Sigil Games on Vanguard and previous to that was working for SOE on EQ 2 which was my first job out of college. The circle has, in a sense, been completed :).

What areas within the game have you worked on, and which are you most proud of?

During my years here I've touched on most areas of the game, meaning, technical player character work, a Keith Parkinson original NPC, terrain, environment and objects. I am probably most proud of the wall/row of ancient giant statues that islocated outside of Vulmane village and the revamp of the elven starting city of Leth Nurae.
