•  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 it's not a deal breaker):
• Shipped at least one AAA title.
• 3D modelling and rendering.
• Experience working in film, TV, publishing.
