experienced artist who is able to take direction from the game director – UK

Come and join the Futur!

The team behind the critically acclaimed Velocity series is looking for an experienced games artist to help create a brand new IP!

FuturLab is a small and friendly team based in Brighton, UK. We are looking for an experienced artist who is able to take direction from the game director and also able to mentor more junior staff.

FuturLab is in the unique position of having complete creative control of its own IP, therefore this position is ideal for someone who is keen to have their ideas listened to, and will enjoy seeing their own work highly visible within a finished product. We are looking for someone who has a strong background in creating environments. This position will not suit a character artist.

You will work closely with the game director to develop game aesthetics, and then carry them throughout the whole production cycle; from initial concepts through to the production of varied in-game assets, UI and into product launch with the creation of merchandise artwork and storefront visuals.

You will easily acknowledge the colourful, stylish and futuristic in-house style we’ve established, and help develop a distinctive and unique style for the new IP that sits comfortably within our portfolio.
