Job Description Character Concept Artist – Amsterdam

Gezellig, hè? (Loosely translated, this means Cozy, right?)

Gezellig is one of those special words whose meaning is beyond translation. Often used as ‘cozy’, gezellig means much more than this English word can express. Imagine being in the company of close friends at your favourite café, chatting effortlessly around a table of drinks. That pleasant, comfortable, feeling is more or less ‘gezellig’; and by saying ‘Gezellig, hè?’ 

This is the feeling you'll have when you join your new studio and work family in the heart of Amsterdam.

To keep up with the momentum generated from their most recent success, this studio are now on the lookout for a Character Concept Artist. You'll work with the Art Director and a team of 2D and 3D artists to establish the direction for their character designs on upcoming projects. 

You'll create briefs and key art & mood paintings to establish the tone and game mechanics as needed, alongside other key art for marketing and promotional materials as needed.
