  • Other visual design work as required from time to time.



  • A strong portfolio that shows your full range of creative and technical abilities – ideally including stylised concept work.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills – fluent in English.
  • A strong sense of independence and autonomy.
  • Creatively minded, and detail-oriented.
  • Ability to collaborate well, and stay sensitive to the needs of the team.
  • Highly motivated and adaptable, comfortable working across a variety of mediums and contexts.
  • Comfortable adapting to the minimalist visual style of our internal projects.
  • Proficient in 2D software such as Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and Procreate.
  • Experience delivering assets to detailed specifications, for internal reference, web and print.

The points below are strictly bonuses, therefore we encourage you to apply, even if you don’t feel you meet any of them! We learn on the job every day and will support you to do the same.

  • Any experience implementing or realising your concepts as final game-ready assets, inside a game engine.
  • Experience modelling and rigging 3D characters for animation.
  • Experience with animation or motion graphics.

Additional Information

As this is a contract position, we are open to a number of possibilities in terms of how you manage your hours with us each week, as well as how you structure your time on the project. While the initial contract term is 6 weeks, we expect there will be ongoing concept art work for the duration of this project. We envision this initial contract will likely evolve into a longer term collaboration.
