Description

Interface3 is looking for a 2D graphics artist/animator to join our creative team in Edinburgh. As a
key part of a small startup, you’ll be working closely with the rest of the team in all things visual
when it comes to developing our innovative multiuser, multitouch games. This includes the initial
concept art, all the way through to the in-game assets and even the marketing materials afterwards.
You’ll have a decent amount of leeway to create cool, innovative stuff and we hope you’ll be excited
to contribute to the overall look and feel of each game too.

Our ideal candidate is someone who has had direct experience in working on computer games and
in particular, children’s games. You should be very comfortable with character and in-game asset
design. You will be a creative thinker who can contribute and comment on the design process as well
as aid parts of production such as asset management and work to deadlines and specification.
Excellent communication skills are a must, since you’ll be working with games designers and
developers to ensure that we produce an awesome looking game.

Responsibilities:

       Create game and character design concepts
       Design in-game assets as well as graphics for promotions outside of the game
       Ability to carry through designs from concept to production
       Contribute to the design process and be a key member of the games production

Requirements:

       Ability to create 2D characters and assets
       Can work creatively and to deadlines and specification
       Attention to detail and excellent communication skills
       Have initiative and also play well with others (it’s all about the team!)
       Ability to work in a fast-paced environment

Experience in some or all of the following will be an advantage:

       Quick sketching and storyboarding experience
       Experience with Flash or Maya
       3D modelling and animation is a plus but not required
       Significant experience with iPhone/iPad games
       Enjoy working in a start-up environment and ready to grow with the company
       Experience working with Unity3D or Microsoft Expression Blend
