Art Manager (Hybrid)

Apply

Description

As our AAA development teams grow in size, so does the need for a world class support structure to enable it. The people at nDreams are the studio’s most precious resource and their personal learning and development is our top priority. The Art Manager will be dedicated to the nurturing, development, and career progression of all artists across multiple projects.

Are you experienced and organised enough to gauge people’s ability for specific tasks? Do you have the aptitude and foresight to effectively critique individuals’ ability for wider roles? If so then you could be the back bone of our growing Art Department. Acting as the bridge between creativity and the practicalities of development, alongside Producers and Art Directors, you will be responsible for growing the department, whilst maintaining a balanced and flexible skillset.

If you enjoy disseminating your experience to others, enabling others to grow, or even surpass your own ability, then this role marries personal reward with intrinsic input into the delivery of our studio’s future AAA games.

What Will You Be Doing?

Working alongside Producers and team leads to ensure Art resourcing is appropriate and planned for.

Growing and developing the Art Teams for personal review, career progression, skill balance and recruitment.

Galvanising the art team towards the execution of a cohesive vision and specific goals and deadlines.

Liaising with the Art Director(s) with reference to the execution of any given art style or vision.

Working with Principal Artists in Identifying areas or individuals in need of mentoring, support or further development.

Ensuring solid working practices are agreed upon and are in place to enable the universal creation of quality across the studio.

Building a roadmap for the immediate, midterm and long term artistic ambitions of the studio.

Requirements

  • A seasoned artist with proven experience in organising and delivering AAA game developments.
  • Demonstrably experienced in executing cohesive aesthetics across multiple styles, genres and platforms.
  • Someone who is self-driven and autonomous with a natural flare for the Production side of creating art content as much as the creative.
  • Strong verbal and written skills to enable clear and concise articulation of individual feedback and reviews as much as content critiquing.
  • Someone who can plan for the immediate, medium- and long-term art requirements of the studio.
  • Can demonstrate a solid working knowledge of contemporary pipeline software and working practices.
  • A seasoned developer who has the foresight and confidence of development experience to decide appropriate methods of execution when it comes to delivering a given vision.
  • Someone with a pro-active and nurturing mentality, conducive to the mentoring and objective critiquing of a growing Art Department.
