STUDIO ART DIRECTOR
Pixel Talent is delighted to be working on a brand new role for one of the worlds most creative game studios. A game studio that is not afraid to take risks and try out new ideas, often the quirkier the better!
It would suit a Senior Art Director looking to lead the art vision across multiple games or a Studio Art Director that wants to be more creative and work on games that have a sense of humour for a change.
The ideal candidate will have an outstanding portfolio of game art that demonstrates their workflow from concept to creation. They will be able to present the portfolio and talk through how they make decisions while demonstrating a deep understanding of the fundamentals of art, how it can create emotion, tell stories and influence player decisions.
They will be a natural leader; inspiring, mentoring and coaching a team of talented Lead Artists to achieve award-winning visual quality whilst having experience of the administrative tasks of hiring, career path development, performance and pay reviews, etc.
The Studio Art Director will join the Senior Management team as the ambassador for Art helping to shape the studios creative strategy and future. Working closely with other key stakeholders (Product, Marketing, Publishing etc.) to ensure art style and content choices are in alignment with commercial goals.
The studio is made up of a diverse workforce, and encourages applications from anywhere in the world and will support visa applications and relocation.
The salary is very competitive, shares are awarded on joining and there is an extensive list of benefits, including a generous holiday allowance, private medical, life insurance, pension and extended maternity/ paternity pay.
The studio trialled remote working last year with great success and is now able to offer full-time remote working to those that would like it. However, the London based studio remains open for ad-hoc meetings and hot desking.
