Stacey Bates-McCue's career began with what she describes as "confusion". After starting a Fine Art degree, she ended up doing a work placement at a graphic design consultancy, leading her to drop out of uni, and she hasn't looked back since.

She now heads up Fluid's Licensing team, and delivers innovative and engaging design solutions for global entertainment across film, gaming, sports and TV. She's worked with well-loved brands including John Wick, Pac-Man, Capcom, SpongeBob, Tetris and more, and her Pac-Man Shine On campaign recently won at the Global Entertainment Awards.
