Giant Fox Studios is looking for a Senior Artist/UI Designer to work on an upcoming indie mobile game about helping dogs in a shelter! We are looking for someone that can help establish an art style for the game based on other references, competitors, and an existing library of dog assets that we have already completed.

Here’s a screenshot from the game currently: 

We’re hoping to find an artist who can create art and UI assets similar to Wildscapes: 

Responsibilities

  • Create art for background assets
  • Create art for game objects
  • Create UI assets throughout the game
  • Establish the art and UI style guide to help guide future art assets

Requirements

  • Must have at least 3-5 years experience working on art for 2D games
  • Must have ample experience with Photoshop
  • Great communication and collaborative skills working with a team of other designers, developers, and creatives
  • A willingness to learn new workflows
  • Ability to both give and receive criticism in a constructive and goal-oriented way
  • Ability to problem-solve and work around technical and budget constraints
  • Be very comfortable working remotely (we’re a virtual studio; everyone works from home!)
  • Live in a US-adjacent timezone or be willing to work from 9am to 2pm MT from Monday through Friday
  • Detail-oriented, thoughtful, and aware of dependencies across systems and schedules‍
  • You are able to communicate in fluent English

Nice to Have

  • Experience on similar mobile games
  • Experience creating UI assets that can be 9-sliced
  • Experience working with and/or defining brand guidelines
  • Experience with Unity3D
  • An understanding or affinity for graphic design

Location

  • Remote-first team since 2011
  • US preferred but open to someone in a similar time zone range as well
  • This is a contract position which is expected to last about 6 months to a year; this arrangement could continue on to other projects if things are going well for both parties
  • This role is flexible time-wise, but Full-Time (40 hours / week) is preferred
  • This role is contract, so it does not include salaried benefits
  • Please include specific questions with your application!

How to Apply

We can’t wait to hear from you!

About Giant Fox Studios

Giant Fox Studios is a creative digital agency founded in 2011 that focuses on games, but also works in web and app development. We started off making Flash games for clients like Bored.com, which then expanded into taking on clients for mobile games. We now have consistent client projects that help fund the development of our own indie games. The team is made up of one founder, Jaime, and a wide range of contractors. This includes industry veterans that have worked on AAA games like Hearthstone, Madden, and DragonVale. Because of this structure, our team is very flexible and usually hired per project. However, many contractors choose to continue working with us on new projects that come up as well.

We care very much about the people we work with and strive to exceed expectations. We hope to be a significant, but not dominating, part of your life. We want you to have friends, family, hobbies, and a life outside of work. We work as a team - we want you to love your colleagues and to also know that they support you 100%. We want you to be proud of what you do and how you do it.

Since 2011 we’ve been a fully remote team. We generally have team meetings in the morning (US timezone), but outside of that, you are able to work whenever you’d like to. As long as you keep the team updated regularly, we are quite flexible.

We love learning from each other and have knowledge shares where a team member picks a topic they are passionate about to share. It’s an optional thing, but we love learning together and helping each other grow.
