Welcome to Timbre!

We are Timbre Games (part of the Sumo Digital Group), a new studio in Vancouver, Canada focused on making exciting, innovative game experiences. Timbre’s vision is to change the games industry through the original games we make, as well as how we make them. We’re building an inclusive, supportive culture that allows us to explore fresh, new (and sometimes weird) ideas. We’re searching for more visionary explorers to join our team of diverse voices, coming together to develop games that are accessible to a wide audience.

If you’re thinking about your next adventure, send us your resume to talk to our team about how you can add your voice to the games we’re working on.

Art at Timbre Games

We are visionaries, sculptors, painters and landscapers of virtual worlds. Together, we breathe life into creative concepts and ideas while defining experiences and quality. We collaborate with multiple departments to establish our vision, and absolutely light up as we watch it all come together. We are utilizing advanced tools and technologies to shape our vision of building diverse and accessible AAA games.

As an Art Director at Timbre games, you’ll be working with a cross discipline team to define and direct the look of our first original IP - from characters to worlds to fx and UI. You’ll work closely with the Game Director to create and visualize the game, and will help grow the careers of our leads and all artists. You know that as an Art Director, communication is your greatest tool, and you’re an excellent communicator of visual ideas. Whether through concept art, style guides, or presentations, you are experienced in the presentation of visual concepts that inspire a team and galvanize everyone around a well thought out idea.

Art Directors impact our team by bringing all disciplines together to build the vision of our game(s), while growing and guiding the careers of our Art team. You will also bring empowerment and mentorship to our art team. By using collaboration, inclusion and mentorship, you will inspire everyone on a brand new original IP from prototyping through to launch!
