This company is the leading developer and producer of Family Entertainment Centers and Adventure Parks all over the world.

They are a global company that has grown exceptionally over the few last years and they need a new illustrator to complement their already highly skilled design teams in Sweden, Italy and the UK.

Job Role:

Working within a small in-house graphics team, producing artwork and illustrations for Children's Indoor Play Center's ranging from small Toddler / Nursery Areas (0-3 years), to very large multi level structures for children aged up to 12 years +. These larger structures may include multiple themes for many different areas, including party rooms and sports areas to laser and air cannon arenas.

Artwork and illustrations will need to reflect the desired age range, to create a friendly and creative play environment. A wide range of themes are required for these play structures, including: jungle, underwater, space, urban, industrial, etc.

Day to day role will mainly consist of using the current graphics library to produce artwork for large format printing which is printed on site. Graphics will need to be sized to meet their current production templates and products.

You will need to work closely with multiple departments in both the office and the factory to ensure the artwork is produced in the intended and correct way. If the desired artwork is not available in the graphics library, you will be required to create the new artwork and add this to the library for future use. This will require liaising with the customer and sales team to produce the desired artwork before production.

The use of Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign is essential for the job role. Deadlines can be very tight, so the ability to work under pressure and to clearly and confidently communicate with the production departments is also essential to meet the tight deadlines.

Within your CV, please attach a 3-5 page PDF portfolio. They will be paying most attention to your rendering and modelling skills. Show off your best work and add short descriptions of what you did and which program was used with every sample.
