About Splash Damage
Come join us!
We founded Splash Damage with a mission to create lifelong friendships for our players and our employees by building the world’s most engaging multiplayer experiences with world-leading partners. Our teams have just celebrated the launch of Gears Tactics and we’re currently working on several exciting unannounced titles.
Our people always come first, and we acted swiftly to ensure that we moved all our employees to a work from home model during the COVID-19 outbreak in the UK, and this will continue for the foreseeable future. With our first-class virtual onboarding programme, we’re able to get you up and running remotely during this time and we’re maintaining our relaxed and welcoming culture with digital social events, daily company communications and much more. With the relaxing of travel and quarantine restrictions in the UK, we are now relocating new team members from outside the UK to London prior to starting their employment with us. This gives new Splashers the opportunity to establish a home in the local area, before joining their teams in working remotely until such time as we return to the studio. We will continue to monitor the situation in line with government advice, and look forward to having all of our amazing staff back into the studio as soon as it is safe to do so.
We're advocates for work-life balance and offer flexible working arrangements to suit individual needs and a comprehensive benefits package which focuses on family and mental well-being. Together with this we’ve been running a formal Equality, Diversity and Inclusion programme for nearly two years and are committed to increasing diversity across our studio.
UI Artists at Splash Damage utilise their skills with iconography and graphic design to visually enhance user interfaces to create a clear and consistent player experience.
Applying a range of artistic skills and knowledge, UI Artists are responsible for creating and maintaining graphical cohesion between game visuals and the requirements of the UI as specified by the UI team. Employing flexibility with their craft, UI artists are also occasionally required to assist in the creation of in-game assets such as signage and iconography. A good artistic eye and illustration skills are an advantage.
UI artists are highly collaborative and work in partnership with multiple development disciplines to create, refine and implement new ideas and solutions. They see new challenges as opportunities to develop their skills and are keen to keep honing their technical ability and expertise in addition to their general artistic skills.
We believe that levelling up our skills is an essential part of the job and offer regular training opportunities and mentorship to all our UI Artists.
