Current Vacancies: Australia
Do you have a portfolio of insanely great artwork? A talent for herding cats? Then we might be interested in you. Lead Artists are expected to do all the stuff that regular artist-type Artists do, along with a role as an inspirer of artistic greatness and an ability to communicate the "coherent vision" thing to other members of the team. Prior experience in the industry is definitely an advantage with this role, but a talent for art and a passion for doing a great job are just as important.
Do you have a portfolio of great artwork? Then we might be interested in you. Successful candidates will be trained artists who show talent, creativity and artistic flair. Work experience with 3DStudioMax (or other 3D packages) would be an advantage, but not essential. Talent is the key, whether you use a pencil, ceiling brush or mouse to create the right image.
Can you do rather clever things with program code? OK, can you do extraordinary things with program code in C, C+ or C++? Stuff so good it would knock our socks off? In that case, we're definitely interested in hearing from you.
