UI Artist

STUDIO PROFILE
Fortitude is a new studio based in Guildford, UK, dedicated to building innovative and creative games. By spring-boarding from parent company Mediatonic’s wealth of experience and connections, we’re growing quickly and pouring heart and soul into developing exciting titles that provide players with surprising, polished and high-quality experiences that are able to cut through a crowded marketplace.

We are looking to hire highly-motivated and talented individuals with the passion and skills to deliver premium-quality games from day one, while growing as part of a small team working with original properties and highly-acclaimed IPs to create a world-class games studio.  

Responsibilities

As UI Artist at Fortitude, you'll be responsible for ensuring our games are a joy to interact with. 

 

We are hiring for a specific title at the moment, with a bold, cartoonish and flamboyant style – but we are constantly pitching and working on a wide range of titles across multiple platforms, so you’ll need to be comfortable with a wide range of styles.

Typically, you'll be working within one of our studio teams to lead the UI design and UX from the start to the end of a project. 

As part of the core team crafting games with us, you will need to be able to: 

  • Design original and beautiful user-interfaces
  • Illustrate UI components such as icons and assets
  • Lead the UI design and UX from the start to the end of a project
  • Champion UX, mapping our player journey and information flow
  • Ensure players have the information they need at precisely the right time
  • Contribute to concepts and pitches
  • Troubleshoot live products and designs
  • Work with technical delivery teams to solve technical and logistical issues with UI

Requirements

In addition to those fundamentals, we’d also like to see the following where possible:

  • 2+ years commercial experience in the games industry, working on UI
  • Advanced skills in design software such as Photoshop & Illustrator
  • A strong portfolio of User Interface and Application designs (ideally for mobile or console games)
  • A passion for excellence in interface design and usability
  • In-depth knowledge of UI and UX principles
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Exceptional eye for detail and quality
  • Experience with Unity is (not essential but highly desirable)

Application

In addition to a short, sharp CV we would like to hear a little extra from you.

Please include with your application no more than one A4 page detailing:
