Six to Start

Contract/Part-Time Artist Needed!

This role has now been filled

Six to Start is looking for a contract or part-time artist to work on a brand new fitness game - as well as Zombies, Run!, our bestselling running app - to help people get fit and have fun in the process!

Specifically, we want someone who can create illustrated-yet-realistic landscapes in 2D, like the examples below from our new game (but with a lot more variety in practice - most of the landscapes won't look like this!):

 

We're also interested in people who can create the types of isometric 2D buildings we have in the Zombies, Run! Season 2 base, as shown below:

Requirements include:

  • You're familiar with how art is processed during game development (e.g. working to code specs, making sure assets fit in, how they need to look on different devices, etc.)
  • You can mimic the painting style we currently use in Zombies, Run!
  • You're friendly, approachable, and flexible in your habits; we’re an indie developer and everyone’s job can be very fluid. If you aren’t comfortable with that, this is not the place for you. But if you like trying out new things and learning very quickly, it is.
  • Deep experience in Photoshop.
  • If you're applying for the part-time position, you will need to visit our office in London at least once a week. The contract position is available for remote workers.
Nice-to-haves include:
  • 1+ year experience in game art and graphic design.
  • Experience in illustration.
Pay is competitive. Get in touch at hello@sixtostart.com with your CV attached and a link to a relevant portfolio.
