About Splash Damage
Come join us!
We founded Splash Damage with a mission to create lifelong friendships for our players and our employees by building the world’s most engaging multiplayer experiences with world-leading partners. Our teams have just celebrated the launch of Gears Tactics and we’re currently working on several exciting unannounced titles.
Our people always come first, and we acted swiftly to ensure that we moved all our employees to a work from home model during the COVID-19 outbreak in the UK, and this will continue for the foreseeable future. With our first-class virtual onboarding programme, we’re able to get you up and running remotely during this time and we’re maintaining our relaxed and welcoming culture with digital social events, daily company communications and much more. With the relaxing of travel and quarantine restrictions in the UK, we are now relocating new team members from outside the UK to London prior to starting their employment with us. This gives new Splashers the opportunity to establish a home in the local area, before joining their teams in working remotely until such time as we return to the studio. We will continue to monitor the situation in line with government advice, and look forward to having all of our amazing staff back into the studio as soon as it is safe to do so.
We're advocates for work-life balance and offer flexible working arrangements to suit individual needs and a comprehensive benefits package which focuses on family and mental well-being. Together with this we’ve been running a formal Equality, Diversity and Inclusion programme for nearly two years and are committed to increasing diversity across our studio.
Senior UI Artists at Splash Damage utilise their experience with iconography and graphic design to create the visual identity of our user interfaces while ensuring a clear and consistent player experience.
Applying their range of honed artistic skills and working in partnership with the UI design team, Senior UI Artists are responsible for assisting in driving the concept, creation and iteration of the UI presentation. We trust our Senior UI Artists to work autonomously in establishing the art direction for UI elements and improving workflows to produce assets and documentation. Senior UI artists also work closely with the UI engineering team to establish technical and visual specifications to ensure UI implementation matches mock-ups.
Senior UI Artists enjoy working as part of a team in a friendly and collaborative atmosphere where they have the freedom to keep developing their technical ability. Working closely with the art director they are able to effectively communicate their artistic intent to their team and wider project stakeholders both verbally and visually. Senior UI Artists always look for ways to push themselves and regularly pass their knowledge on to other members of their team.
We believe that levelling up our skills is an essential part of the job and offer regular training opportunities and mentorship to all our Senior UI Artists.
