UX/UI Designer for Games (Mobile and Console) - Sprung Studios

Brighton and Hove

Closing date: 12/07/2018

Job Description:

ARE YOU THE WORLD’S BIGGEST FAN OF GAMES?!

If you don’t have any experience in the industry, then that’s fine, because we are looking for amazing artists that LOVE games and have a fascination for the way things work.

Breaking into the games industry can be difficult, we understand that.

Send us some UI art you’ve made. A good clear CV is super helpful too, but images, screenshots, demos and videos are the best.

This is NOT a job opportunity for someone who thinks that they quite like the idea of working in the games industry, but doesn’t really know much about games.

This is a job opportunity for someone who reads about games, plays games, chats with friends about games, dreams about games and would tear down our door to work on some of their favourite games of all time!

Write us a cover letter and explain to us why you are that person!

You must have a portfolio of design work.

An Art Test will be required to qualify for an interview

 
Skills Range:

What We Are Looking For

• Ability to produce high quality, accessible and fresh designs

• Fluent Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign & Flash skills with MAC OS

• Must have excellent attention to detail and the ability to effectively multi-task

• Willing to listen to constructive criticism and change work accordingly

• Able to create several designs around a single idea to give choice to the client

• A good understanding of animation

• Ability to work in a small team, and communicate effectively with department colleagues and key business representatives

• Good sub-editing and proof reading skills

• Good under pressure and able to meet very tight deadlines

• Confidence to deal with clients professionally

• The applicant must have excellent  verbal communication skills. Client contact requires the creation of documentation in which design ideas must be communicated fluently in written form.

 
Person Specification:

You must have an excellent art focussed portfolio showing that you can create digital design and artwork in a variety of styles and have a desire to learn more about interaction principles.

Suitable for a newly graduated person, the right candidate will be outgoing and not afraid to be innovative as well as thoughtful and understanding of the clients’ requirements.

Our staff are all highly skilled and work closely together, the right applicant will need to slot straight in and be a good team player.

You will have an interest and knowledge of games on all platforms and an understanding of what makes a good interaction experience.
