Job Description


At Nexon, games are more than a business, and marketing them isn’t just about selling stuff. For us, creative assets for marketing mobile games should get players excited and draw them into each game’s unique world. It’s an experience that starts with their very first interaction with our game—whether it’s a display ad or a launch trailer—and continues with every interaction they have with our game. Our creative decisions are informed by both brand values and performance metrics in equal parts. Unified marketing creative should tell a story to captivate players with every visual asset they encounter and expand their experience of the game. Every interaction with our work should inspire Nexon customers to be passionate game fans and loyal brand advocates.


We’re looking for a Senior Visual Designer to be a core participant on the Nexon marketing creative team, responsible for supporting creative development and execution of assets for marketing channels including brand identity, platform store assets, user acquisition, community, events, and swag. You may also support project creative leads with concept and design explorations for app icons, App Store screens, logos, key art, and brand design toolkits. We’re looking for highly skilled design chops with a natural talent and vision for graphic design, identity, layout, image development, color theory, and typography. The right candidate works fluidly in Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign.

Our Senior Visual Designer will thrive in a collaborative environment but also dig into projects individually and participate in critique discussions on the merits of the work. You work and play well with others on the team, receive and share criticism professionally and supportively, and interact effectively with internal clients and developers. This Senior Visual Designer will bring fresh imagination and state-of-the-art skills, take direction from Art Directors, Project Managers, and/or the Creative Director, and act as an integrated member of our fast-paced marketing team. They will bring a point of view to back up their talent and seamlessly add their abilities to our growing creative team.

In addition to high quality visual design, the distinction of Senior Visual Designer includes the ability to communicate clearly and comfortably in cross-functional conversations, to deliver valid criteria for design recommendations, and to advocate for excellence in design using criteria our clients and developer partners understand and value. The Senior Visual Designer must have diplomatic skills to engage with clients and developers from a strategic perspective, while also delivering staggeringly successful design work.
