UI Artist (Contract)

Contract Only. Remote.

Midlevel to Senior

As a UI Artist specializing in materials at Notorious, you will play a pivotal role in defining the aesthetic and tactile feel of our game interfaces. Your expertise will bring to life the essential elements that interact directly with the player, such as icons, menus, and interactive game elements.


In this role, you will apply your artistic skills and technical knowledge to create visually compelling materials that enhance the player's experience. You will craft everything from textured surfaces that mimic real-world materials to fantastical elements that fit within our game's unique universe. Being part of Notorious's small but growing team offers a unique opportunity to significantly shape what we believe will be the next standout PvPvE RPG for an underserved audience.


What project you'd be working on


We're currently building a new core fantasy RPG game for PC/Console using Unreal 5. Elements of this project include open worlds, core RPG fantasy theme, PvPvE, third-person action-based combat, player stories, and engaging systems. It's still very early and anything can change, which you can be a part of.


About Notorious

We aspire to have a flatter organizational structure where everyone has a chance to lead. We have a culture of open and candid communication where the best idea wins. Sparks can fly, but we always attack ideas, not people.
