Founded in 2010 by the original creators of the Call of Duty Franchise, Respawn was created with the philosophy that when talented people have creative freedom, they'll make extraordinary games that achieve the unexpected. Our shipped titles include critically acclaimed multi-platform games Apex Legends, Titanfall, Titanfall 2, Star Wars™ Jedi: Fallen Order, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, and Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond. You can learn more about our studio and values at respawn.com/studio.
In collaboration with Lucasfilm, the Star Wars™ FPS Team is developing a new AAA FPS in the Star Wars™ galaxy. Inspired by classic titles like Dark Forces and Jedi Knight: Dark Forces 2, our story-driven single player game is being developed from the ground up leveraging the power of Unreal Engine 5. We’re combining this inspiration and technology with Respawn’s pedigree for making best-in-class shooters to deliver a brand new experience our players will love.
We are recruiting for a Senior UI Artist to join our growing team. Our ideal candidate will help establish the look and feel of our upcoming title's UI, with a focus on UI style. They have a strong generalist art foundation and a comprehensive understanding of design principles. They bring a wide range of skills, including graphic design, illustration, iconography, typography, and motion design. They have a good sense for visual hierarchy, color, and balance, and are able to create complete designs that take all elements into account. They're great at capturing the essence of a style, and matching that in their own work as they build out a library of art assets. Upon identifying the required style, they'll champion that style, both in their own work and in the critique phase of the work of others. They stay current on modern trends in 2d art, from within the game industry and also beyond it. And even though they're great at their craft, they're still looking for every good opportunity to become a better artist than they already are.
What you'll do:
Work closely with UX/UI lead and other artists to continue improving and solidifying the UI style of the game.
Work over UX wireframes to create full fidelity screen mockups.
Generate assets for menus, icons, buttons, backgrounds, top-down maps, etc.
Get your work critiqued and participate in the critique of others' work as well.
Create motion comps to guide UI FX implementation and at times direct other departments, such as VFX for in-world effects.
Create mockups to visualize various important gameplay beats that relate to UI.
Assist in development of world signage and other graphic design tasks.
Ideally, you will have:
5+ years experience as an artist focusing on 2d art, for both conceptual and final asset production.
A strong portfolio of high quality UI art.
Shipped AAA game/s preferred but open for relevant level of experience outside of games.
Proficiency with various content creation programs, eg. Photoshop, Illustrator, Figma, and After Effects.
Experience implementing in the Unreal engine is a major plus.
If this opportunity sounds like a great fit for you, please submit your resume and portfolio and we will get back to you once we have reviewed it.
In addition to opportunities for creative impact and professional growth which come with being a member of our team, working at Respawn has many other perks and benefits! Learn more at respawn.com/perks.
