My AR journey has been a steep learning curve – I’m coming from a creative background with little to no technical know-how. From an artistic perspective AR opens up so many creative opportunities, it’s really freeing. My style combines physical with digital which I feel reflects the world we live in. My plan is to create art that educates the public on the different ways AR can impact our lives.

I like to use AR to satirize day-to-day life and inject a bit of whimsy into the world! I love AR as it can challenge people’s perspectives on how we see the world around us, as opposed to completely submerging into a different universe. I also like to use AR to teach people about interesting lost histories and have developed several public-facing experiences from a Welsh History poster trail, to an AR Boat trip hunting ancient beasts along the water, and 90s-style experience about a Kentish cult! I have a background in CG Arts, so AR seemed like the natural next step for me. In the future, I’m hoping to develop further my skills as a unity developer to create more learning experiences, and begin hosting AR dining parties!

I started as an architect and interior designer, and it always keeps me somewhere between creativity and practicality – each time I learn something new in AR, I try to find its purpose in real life. I like rethinking our daily routine, and how it can be changed/improved by implementing new technologies.
AR is a fantastic field of inventing something new. AR changes our points of view on usual things. I believe AR will enlarge human understanding of the surroundings and, of course, improve human communication. I think that future technology should not be perceived as a distraction, but more like a superpower to enhance our vision, know more, and make life easier and happier.
I can’t define any exact style of my filters. The concepts of my Lenses come from combining the features that I’ve learned and my lifestyle. When I have time to learn new tools, I try to create engaging experiences, and think of how they could be used in the foreseeable future.

Hello, I’m Craig, and I’ve been making Instagram filters since late 2019. I initially decided to give it a try because I kept seeing sponsored adverts on Facebook for Meta’s filter creation software – Spark AR Studio.
I work as an artist in the videogames industry and have a keen interest in shaders, so making filters has been a good opportunity for experimentation and learning different techniques.
I like that Spark AR allows me to take the input of a phone’s camera and transform mundane everyday imagery into weird and wonderful interactive works of art that anybody can use.

I’m Zofia – a mixed media artist, and a student at the Royal Academy of Art in Hague. My love for AR started at the Academy, which motivated me to intern at the Dutch AR studio Videorbit, before transferring to my current position at Beyond. I love working with futuristic, psychedelic, and cyber-liquidy-glowy aesthetics. Currently, I create mostly on Instagram and TikTok. I simply love seeing people interacting with the little creations so they can adjust to the Augmented layer of their lives. I also draw inspiration from my other hobbies like makeup and VJ-ing. Extremely excited to explore more and be one of the Co-Creators of the AR world.

Hey guys! I am Vitória D’Ugo (@vitoriadugo) AR creator from São Paulo, Brasil. Back in 2020, I started to create beauty filters just for fun, and nowadays it’s pretty much my life! Since the beginning I had always seen its power as a marketing tool and jumped straight into the AR Marketing scene, building up my own company. I’ve already had the opportunity to work with many cool big brands such as Coca-Cola, Puma, 3M Company, Endemol Shine, etc.
I was always passionate about audiovisual communication, and by developing filters I am always doing something that entertains me a lot. It’s crazy to think about all the possibilities that you can get with AR, you can pretty much bring your dreams to the real world, and this is what amazes me the most when we’re talking about AR or VR. It’s all about providing meaningful, enjoyable, and bonding experiences.
For me, inspiration comes from everywhere. Every week I try to walk around the city and discover new art exhibitions or even try to do something different that I’ve never tried before. I love to see other perspectives and listen to other opinions and this influences my work for sure.
My focus is branding filters however I’m all into the artistic side of it, exploring new features and new Spark AR potentials, mainly with colors. The more you know about designing, coding, and even modeling, the more you can explore. Can’t wait to see what’s coming next when we’re talking about AR, I truly believe in its full potential!

Hi, my name is Ajie Chandra (IG: @ajiechx) from Indonesia. The beginning of my journey in Augmented Reality started with the Metaverse concept. Combining fantasy and reality that’s what I think of the Metaverse. My daily life is making filters for fun and also helping clients to complete their AR campaigns. I also made AR tutorial videos in Indonesian (Youtube: Vafilter). To find inspiration I visited the Spark AR Gallery and Lenslist pages, lots of extraordinary works from creators that encourage me to keep trying new things in AR.

Hey, my name is Egidijus. I’m a Lithuania-based AR creator with a skill set ranging from 3d modeling, shaders, and lighting to VFX. I try to use it all to create visually stunning experiences.
My main source of inspiration comes from animated films and games. I love how each of these media can transfer you into different worlds and let you experience things that you wouldn’t be able to experience in real life. My goal is to achieve the same with AR.
I see our lives as if it would be a video game or a movie. We all live as characters with our own unique stories and life paths. In my recent creations, I started to explore universe-building with the help of AR. I want to see my work as cartridges that users can open and play through a new storyline. Would it be a digital wearable that turns the user into a mystical character or an object which turns your environment into a post-apocalyptic set.
As for style – I love blending 2D and 3D media. It gives me a unique graphic style that works well in AR. It creates some sort of stylized world effect which helps to convey that you are transferred out of this world into a truly different universe.
