Job Description

Wyrd Miniatures, LLC. is currently looking for a full-time On-site Concept and Character Artist. This position will be responsible for working with the Wyrd team to create the visuals for new and existing game lines.

While Wyrd appreciates individual creativity and style, a successful candidate must be able to demonstrate the ability to match current visuals for Malifaux, The Other Side, and Through the Breach.

This position is located in Marietta, Georgia. The position is on-site - no working remotely. We are not in a position to sponsor applicants from overseas - if you can show up on-site with an existing work visa, we'll happily consider you. Position to be filled is for a 4/10 work week, Monday thru Thursday, ten-hour workdays - extended weekends off. 

Primary Job Duties

  • Provide line and color concepts, up to print quality full-color illustrations that fall with-in the design profile of Wyrd Miniatures’ established lines.
  • Work closely with a team to bring life to new concepts through digital visual representation.
  • Work directly with the Creative Director to ensure that all project specifications are on target, both conceptually and in terms of timeframe.
  • Assist Creative Director as needed with direction and communication of outsourced projects.
  • Flexibility in taking on new projects with the willingness to contribute to additional tasks outside of concept and character development.
  • Maintain an extensive digital database of art assets.

Requirements

  • A commitment to hitting deadlines and turning around requests in a timely manner.
  • Professional verbal and written communication skills.
  • Must be willing to work on-site in Marietta, Georgia.

What Makes You A Good Fit At Wyrd

Wyrd is successful because of our employees’ willingness to take initiative and their passion for creativity. To succeed here, you must be eager to take on a variety of roles, not all of which will be directly related to design. We all pitch in where and when we’re needed, and you should be willing to do the same. We are looking for someone who has the ability to take constructive criticism, share their passion for design and wants to grow with the company.
