Pixel Art With The Latest Tech

Pixel Art With The Latest Tech

My job here at AIDIS is to do with the pixel art featured our games. Pixel art has been a hobby of mine for a long time. One day it occurred to me I could maybe do this professionally at a games company, and so when I heard about AIDIS from a friend, I decided to apply. Now here I am, beside myself with joy at being able to make a living doing something I really like. But of course, since pixel art creation is my job now, I have to treat it seriously and put more effort than ever to make it of outstanding quality.

Pixel art has this retro feel to it, but advancements in technology mean that we're no longer limited to only a few basic colors, and 2D pixel graphics can in fact be more expressive and complex than they used to. I hope to take our modern pixel art, born from traditional techniques and the newest graphic technology, to its limits and beyond!

My colleagues and I are on the same page when it comes to keeping to schedule and maintaining high work standards. Most of us are really into games, so we often talk about new releases, but we're not just game nerds. There are also the gym-goers among us who can recommend gyms that offer discounts to health insurance holders, for example! In fact, there are quite a few sporty types working here.

It's a very open work environment overall. I know that I can come up to the art director with some pixel art I made separately from what I was meant to work on to see if, maybe, it could also be of some use. The answer is usually "nah," but that doesn't put me off! If you're a graphic artist interested in making pixel art, get in touch! Don't worry if you don't have much, or any, experience. We have helpful manuals and the staff will happily train you. We would love to hear from you regardless!
