As an Art Director, I will be:

  • Defining the game’s art style, while complying with the creative vision of the initial art direction
  • Conveying expectations, both in terms of the level of quality and content (backgrounds, environments, characters), to the graphics team (concept artists, environment artists, character artists, animation team) by making use of the pertinent visual references, concept art, production design, and atmosphere materials
  • Developing high standards of quality
  • Supervising and approving work completed by the graphics team to ensure that the elements produced comply with the vision for the game, as well as meeting standards for quality
  • Guiding the development and ensuring the maintenance of the flow of artistic tasks
  • Providing guidance and advice to the team, as well as managing freelancers and outside studios, if necessary
  • Providing reports to the project manager and the studio art director
  • Ensuring that the artistic framework, schedule and budget are all abided by

Our ideal candidate:

  • Demonstrates mastery of illustration, animation, and graphic design with versatility regarding backgrounds, characters and UI elements

Since you will be cooperating with several internal teams, communication and knowledge sharing is vital. We frequently share our learnings from both successes and failures. You should be able to argue your point but also be modest, open-minded and willing to admit and learn from your mistakes. That way we’ll all learn and grow together.

Why you will love it here:

  • Independence and a lack of bureaucracy that clears the way for you to do the best work possible
  • Monthly pay 1000-5000€ (depending on experiences)
