About the Job
For our F2P mobile game My Love: Make Your Choice!, an interactive visual novel format that streams new episodes on a daily to weekly basis (Coming of Age meets Romantic Comedy), we are looking for an Artist Intern to support our Art Department. The position is located in our office in Halle. If you like to work very hands-on and also have a good technical background, read on!
What you will do
  • Create artwork for My Love and other projects created at Gamebook Studio and with Gamebook Technology. The spectrum of art styles ranges from the stylized comic look of My Love to more abstract or realistic artwork in our e-learning projects.
  • Collaborate closely with both our art and story team on the process of creating in-game artwork: develop an artistic vision based on author input for characters, backgrounds and and other assets, discuss and implement feedback.
  • Be a proactive and contributing member in an international team of artists at our two company locations in Berlin and Halle.
  • Live and - together with your colleagues - improve our art pipeline and art production processes for episodic content that is linked with Gamebook Technology. As with Gamebook we're navigating uncharted territory, it's one more chance to leave your mark and rethink how interactive content can be made.
  • Work along the project art schedule for our internal and external serial productions in Gamebook Studio.
Your skills and experience
  • You are a student of graphic design, illustration, game art/design or related field.
  • You bring previous experience in creating artwork for games: either in a project of your own or in taking your first steps in the games industry. If you have experience in animation or did jobs in advertising, that's definitely a plus.
  • You have a good understanding of creating 2D artwork in all major production steps: from rough concept to final renders. Experience with 3D modeling and UI design is a big plus.
  • You have a good grasp for the tools used in the creation of art assets: You know your way around Photoshop and Illustrator. If the situation requires it, you're able to create or edit 3D assets with tools like 3D Studio MAX, Blender or Maya.
  • You’re prepared to work as part of our art team in Halle including regular travel to our second company location in Berlin (roughly 1 hr train ride).
  • We're looking for someone who enhances our team with a high level of originality, creativity and the ambition to cover a wide range of styles and be experimental when necessary.
  • You’re a positive and practical team player, independent in your work and a comfortable communicator with a variety of people.
What we offer
  • A tool that’s developed for and with story creators and story lovers from all over the world
  • A growing number of projects from different genres and games to explore in the future
  • A diverse team with experience from a wide field of industries. Heck! Switch Reloaded meets Astronomy PhD
    A family friendly and flexible work environment that gives everyone the opportunity to improve internal as well as external processes. We strive to be flexible and agile, and we're looking forward to your personal contribution to up our game!
  • A constant supply of hot and cold beverages
  • Central located office 5 Minutes away from the central train station
