This is NOT a job opportunity for someone who thinks that they like the idea of working in the games industry, but don’t really know much about games.

Please let us know why you'd like to work in games, and for Sprung Studios specifically in your cover letter - do not just send us your standard blurb or it will go to the bottom of the pile. Also, be sure to send us your portfolio, and other examples of UI art you’ve made (images, screenshots, demos and videos are best).

In order to be considered, we require:

- a cover letter

- a portfolio link

- a resume
