Job Description Our client is looking for a highly creative Senior Concept Artist at their Nottingham studio.

The position is working as part of an experienced and passionate project team. The role is full-time and 100 % based in-house at their Nottingham studio in the UK. Remote or part remote working applications will not be considered.

For the position, they are looking for versatility and rapid iteration; the ideal candidates will revel in the diversity of opportunity and be keen to embrace every stylistic challenge, – and will have the kind of over-active imagination that never stops coming up with new ways to interpret a given brief or add an unexpected twist of surprise to every concept that comes their way. They are looking for inspired and inspiring artists who can over-deliver the unexpected.

Within this role you will:
  • This position is purely hands-on creation of concept pieces to drive the direction of a project and help communicate the Project Art Director’s stylistic vision throughout the team.
  • Responsible for creating and iterating on ideas whilst maintaining the artistic vision of the Project Art Director.
  • Maintaining quality and consistency with the other members of the concept team.
  • Fast concept and iteration of ideas across all aspects of the brief.

We need you to have:
  • Able to work in multiple artistic styles.
  • High levels of aesthetic ability, judgement and eye for detail.
  • Excellent composition, lighting and colour theory skills and appreciation.
  • Excellent communication skills.
  • Self-initiating, confident approach to their work;
  • Keen understanding of cultural influences beyond games; movies, books, TV, comics etc.
  • Ideas generation and iteration.
  • High quality illustrative pieces.
  • Demonstrable talent across all concept disciplines, in particular figurative, environment and object work.

We'd also ideally like you to have (although its not a deal breaker):
  • Shipped at least one AAA title.
  • 3D modelling and rendering.
  • Experience working in film, TV, publishing.
