Paradox Development Studio Red makes world-leading grand strategy games that our fans spend hundreds of hours in. We’re now looking for a 2D UI Artist to join the Victoria 3 development team in Stockholm.

You will be the bridge between our UX and 2D art team, and be responsible for implementing the UX wireframe designs into the game engine, making sure the UI looks great, and is accessible and easy to understand for the player.

You will help develop the overall look of our UIs with a meticulous eye for detail, high quality artwork and strong knowledge of UX. You will work closely with the Art Director in shaping the overall vision for our game, and be a driver for visual improvements and accessibility.

You will collaborate closely with UX and content designers to ensure cohesive execution of UIs that are easily digested by new players.

You will also help craft our game art by creating UI elements, art assets, art styles and supporting artwork that our games may require. You will have the opportunity to work with animation and bring original and modern takes on UI.

  • Strong knowledge of UX to facilitate collaboration with our UX team.

  • Proven skill in creating high quality modern UI art from scratch

  • Articulate in contextualizing decisions, communicating ideas and giving feedback

  • A good eye for typography, composition and color

  • Strong traditional art skills

  • Experience with motion graphics software such as After Effects
