The Lead UI Artist has a key role in the visual development of user interface art for a dark fantasy RPG. They bring creativity, technical execution, and leadership to the team. This lead is critical in concepting, executing, and implementing the UI visual direction, art assets, and animation across the game’s interfaces. As a partner to the Art Director and UX Lead (and key collaborator with both the Design and Art teams), they champion the art vision and thread the needle between artistic aims and practical considerations.
This is a hands-on position, by which the Lead UI Artist sets an example through the creation of exceptionally clear and memorable and animated interface screens, icons, and art that ignite the UI artists they lead to creating equally exceptional work. This role requires an understanding of modern control input methods across console and PC as well as a grip on current AA+ and AAA quality art bars. The ideal candidate has a strong interest in visual design systems, UI animation, and accessibility. Experience with Unreal Engine or other implementation methods is a plus.
