Do you believe in the potential of games to affect positive change? If these are questions that resonate with you, we would love to hear from you.
The Art Director will work in close collaboration with the project Executive Producer and Creative Director, to drive and own the art direction for the IP, one that resonates with the game's target audience (10-14 yr old boys) and forms the basis not only for the game, but for future transmedia development. This includes establishing the overall artistic vision for the game, working within existing constraints, identifying a clear methodology for asset creation, and managing a team of 2D and 3D artists.
