Monte Cook Games, LLC, the company behind the Origins Award-winning Numenera roleplaying game and the upcoming The Strange roleplaying game is very pleased to announce that Bear Weiter is joining MCG as Art Director on June 30, 2014.

Throughout his career, Weiter has demonstrated a keen eye for bringing a clear vision to projects and a passion for good design.

“We were so fortunate to have an amazing slew of candidates for this position–overwhelmed really–so narrowing it down to the right person was hard,” said Monte Cook. “We’ve worked with Bear on other projects outside of MCG and we know how very talented and dedicated he is. We can’t wait for Bear to get started and to bring his vision to MCG products.”

“I’m super excited to join MCG,” said Weiter. “It’s always been a dream of mine to work in the gaming industry, so to be about to embark in this new direction–fulfilling a dream, working with a great team, working with great illustrators and art–it feels incredible to me.”

Professionally, Weiter has worked in the design and graphics world for 20 years, with a wide range of experiences: production work, graphic design, interactive design and development, illustration, animation, and beyond. In 1997 he started his own design company, Wombat Studios, through which he and his business partner handled a variety of projects and clientele—he became sole owner at Wombat in 2008. Outside of the day-to-day tasks of management and client support, his primary focus was in 3D illustration, animation and video production. Weiter brings with him a passion for inspired design, for artists, for high-quality products, and for the art of the fantastic.

The addition of Bear Weiter to Team MCG further establishes this growing start-up as a driving force in the RPG industry.
