Looking to hire a Concept Artist

I’ve spent the last eight years working on Class 3 Outbreak and Zombie Outbreak Simulator. These games have over 1.8 million downloads on Android/iOS, and on the web have been played over 9 million times by over 3 million people.

I announced yesterday that I’m now starting a brand new zombie game.

So, as the first step I’m now looking to hire a Concept Artist. At this stage I have some very rough ideas of what the game will be. I’m looking for you to put together some rough sketches of how the game could look and play.

This is the very start of this game, and so you’ll have complete freedom to come up with whatever you want, including experimenting with a handful of variations. Although a successor to Binary Space’s previous games, the new game won’t have the same style or game play, and so you won’t be constrained by those. I’ll give you more details of what I have in mind during the interview process, so you can get a better feel of whether this is the right project for you.

For now this is just a short-term contract. It can be full-time, part-time, and/or in your spare-time around something else – whatever works for you. In the future if we work well together this may expand into more work – eg as Art Director or Lead Artist for the project, more ad-hoc concept art, or whatever role you might be interested in. Or if you’re just looking for a short-term gig right now, that’s cool too.

I am based in Perth, Western Australia, however the position is open to anyone in the world – you can work remotely. In the past Binary Space has worked with people in Adelaide, Melbourne and the UK – all thousands of kilometres away.

If you’re interested, please send me an email at jobs@binaryspacegames.com with the following:

  • A link to your online portfolio with examples of your best work
  • Your resume (in PDF format – or a link if you have it online)
  • In your email, describe why you’re interested in this position

I encourage people from any background or experience level to apply. You just need to be awesome! :)


Update 29-May: Thanks everyone who has applied – I’ve received over 40 applications! I am now interviewing the top candidates. I have replied to everyone – so if you haven’t heard back from me, please try contacting me again. There is still time to get in an application, but you’ll need to be quick!

Update 7-June: This position has now been filled. Many thanks again to everyone who applied – I received a total of 55 applications! There were a lot of really awesome applications, so it was very hard to narrow down to the 6 people I interviewed and then to select the final person. I’ll be posting more soon as we get into developing this new project. – Saxon
