OPM’s client are looking for a highly creative Senior Concept Artist.

The position is working as part of an experienced and passionate project team delivering an exciting AAA title and is an incredible opportunity for those who want to help shape the art style of a new exciting IP.

For the position, they are looking for versatility and rapid iteration; the ideal candidates will revel in the diversity of opportunity and be keen to embrace every stylistic challenge, – and will have the kind of over-active imagination that never stops coming up with new ways to interpret a given brief or add an unexpected twist of surprise to every concept that comes their way. They are looking for inspired and inspiring artists who can over-deliver the unexpected.


Within this role you will:

•          This position is purely hands-on creation of concept pieces to drive the direction of a project and help communicate the Project Art Director’s stylistic vision throughout the team.

•          Responsible for creating and iterating on ideas whilst maintaining the artistic vision of the Project Art Director. 

•          Maintaining quality and consistency with the other members of the concept team. 

•          Fast concept and iteration of ideas across all aspects of the brief. 

We need you to have:

•          Able to work in multiple artistic styles. 

•          High levels of aesthetic ability, judgement and eye for detail. 

•          Excellent composition, lighting and colour theory skills and appreciation. 

•          Excellent communication skills. 

•          Self-initiating, confident approach to their work; 

•          Keen understanding of cultural influences beyond games; movies, books, TV, comics etc. 

•          Ideas generation and iteration.

•          High quality illustrative pieces. 

•          Demonstrable talent across all concept disciplines, in particular figurative, environment and object work.   

We'd also ideally like you to have (although its not a deal breaker):

•          Shipped at least one AAA title.

•          3D modelling and rendering.

•          Experience working in film, TV, publishing.
