The role @ Sumo
Sumo is looking for a highly creative and versatile Senior Concept Artist for the Concept Team at our Sheffield studio.  The role is full-time and 100 % based in-house at our Sheffield studio in the UK. Remote or part remote working applications will not be considered.  For the position, we are looking for versatility and rapid iteration; the ideal candidate will 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, always striving to deliver excellent concept pieces as required for a project. 

Within this role you will:
• This position is purely hands-on creation of concept pieces to drive the direction of a pitch and help communicate the Creative Director’s vision throughout the Concept Team.
• You will be responsible for creating and iterating on ideas whilst maintaining the vision and feeding into the development of ideas with the wider team. 
• Maintaining quality and consistency with the other members of the concept team. 
• Fast concept and iteration of ideas across all aspects of the brief – from the loose working of thumbnails to finished high-spec presentation pieces.

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, ability to take an idea and develop it further than the brief suggests.
• Keen understanding of western cultural influences beyond games; movies, books, TV, comics etc.  
• Ideas generation and iteration.
• High quality illustrative ability as well as ‘quick and dirty’ productive roughs.
• An open and receptive response to feedback and working within a small, creative, ideas-driven team.
