Online Presence

The team at EPIC (Asher Charles & Nick Vernall) are responsible for the overall development, look and feel of the site, including the wonderful colour palette. They handle all of the hard, technical stuff Mark doesn’t know how to to do, and make it look simple. Thankfully, we share an affection for great coffee & awesome websites.

Illustrations

Over the years Anna Rampelt has deciphered hundreds of Mark’s dodgey-looking hand-sketched stick-figures and diagrams to bless the site with an abundance of illustrations which capture the essence and fun of every activity. I think you’ll agree that her family of little people and characters bring the activities alive.

Video Tutorials

David Piang-Nee and Fiona MacDowall have sat through literally hundreds of hours of video footage to bring you the edited versions of all the video tutorials. Only the best bits got through. Big thanks to my wife too, for holding the camera so steady for hours on end to capture many of these moments.

Group Games App

One of the simplest ways to access playmeo’s resources is via the app. Jarrod Robinson and his PE Geek team managed this task with ease. They made it super-easy for everyone with a smart-phone to access all of our free stuff, adding a login portal for our members too. With 40+ apps to his name, Jarrod knows his stuff.
