Based in the heart of Leamington Spa, Pixel Toys have spent almost a decade pushing the capabilities of mobile and VR gaming. We have developed multiple award-winning titles, including: Gunfinger, Warhammer 40,000: Freeblade, Drop Dead and Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realm War.

As a forward thinking and innovative studio we are always looking for new technologies and techniques to develop and use in our games and make them even more engaging experiences for our customers.

We are excited to continue to grow our team and are always on the lookout for highly talented and motivated individuals, who are passionate about gaming and excited to join us on our ambitious journey!

 

The Role

We are on the search for a talented UI / HUD Artist to help us create wonderful, entertaining games, with high­-end graphics, built for mobile platforms. As one of the core members of the team you will be responsible for working with the creative leads and the art team to take the vision for our games from concept to completion.

Acting as the first point of contact for the graphical design, creation and implementation of the UI and HUD for all of our games, you will manage platform-specific UI assets and screens while working closely with other team members to ensure the UI is consistent, polished and corresponds with the design brief.

 

About you
