Lead Artist / Art Director
As a member of our founding team, you’ll lead the art direction and styles for Versed.
You will work with our team to establish the art direction for Versed. We’re starting with stylised low-poly in a fantasy theme, and plan to add many more themes in the future such as sci-fi, retro, etc.
For each theme and style we’ll need to create a library of 3D assets our creators can use in their stories. This library will be combined and reused in a variety of ways, so a strong knowledge of procedural generation and modular assets is essential.
Later we’ll add AI processes, trained on our asset library, to generate bespoke assets when needed for the creators’ stories. An interest in AI and excitement to work with cutting edge technologies as they emerge is key to this role. We’ll always have an art team making our core reusable assets. All AI used at Versed will be trained ethically and respect the rights of artists.
You have experience with:
Leading art direction for one or more games built in Unity
Creating concept art & sketches
Creating 3D assets (characters, environments etc.) from modeling to rigging, texturing, and animation.
Creating 2D UI design and assets
Setting asset budgets and standards for cross platform delivery and performance (mobile, desktop and console)
Designing procedural generation and modular assets
Optionally, you might also have experience with:
Working on 3D mobile games
Displaying technical art skills (shaders, VFX)
Experimenting with AI art tools such as Stable Diffusion or Midjourney
With the support of our engineering and art team, you'll get to design our Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning systems from scratch.
Develop & refine our LLM tooling
Analyze existing approaches for 3D asset generation (meshes, texturing, animation) and either refine our existing prototypes or research a better solution! Our 3D asset generation is trained on our own assets so we can generate bespoke items for our creators at scale. This will require you to work closely with our lead artist and lead engineer to ensure the assets work well within Unity.
Work with our development team to integrate these generative systems into the creator workflow in an optimized manner.
Working with LLMs
Image or asset generation (eg text-to-2D, custom Stable Diffusion models, point clouds, depth map generation)
Bonus: A strong degree or research experience in AI/ML
While not required, experience in a games studio or startup environment will help your application stand out.
