Work History

  • 2D Artist

    • Eutechnyx Ltd.
    • Gateshead, United Kingdom
    • Sep 2010 - Jul 2014 (3 years 10 months)

    My initial position at the company was as a researcher collecting and assembling reference and research of cars, tracks and environments for 3D artists. During this time I was entrusted as a representative of the company travelling around Europe for various reference trips including motor shows and to international race circuits. My skill set allowed me to quickly move up in the company where I was helping concept props and environments, creating key art, helping to design and develop game UI and creating concept artwork to support new IP pitches.
    I was later given the opportunity to oversee the art direction of Eutechnyx first expansion into the mobile (iOS and Android) market, with Ninja Cats vs Samurai Dogs where I would create 2D assets for the characters, environment props, buildings and additional art pieces such as the campaign map, skill tree and various UI elements.
    My other responsibilities as an artist has been to work closely with the marketing team to help create and produce marketing material for the various Eutechnyx titles. This has included screenshots and capturing and editing video footage for game play and new content trailers.
