Experience

  • Senior Concept artist at Ubisoft Massive
    Malmö, Sweden
    September 2007 - September 2017

    Shipped 4 AAA projects and worked in a number of unannounced projects and IP developments.

    As a Lead I managed the Concept art teams in several projects, by planning and organizing the tasks of all artists, and coordinating the Concept art teams work with the rest teams by working together with producers, other leads, directors and Co-development studios. With these close collaborations I ensured a productive and efficient internal workflow.

    As Senior I was mainly responsible for character creation but I also worked extensively with environment concepts, mood concepts, key frames and presentation art.

    A big responsibility and focus was also to provide tutoring to the junior members of the team, and creating and maintaining a prospering art culture within the Concept art teams.

    I also worked in several projects with the Cinematic team of the studio, working close with the cinematic director providing him and the team with Concept art, Animatics and Story boards.
