As a Concept Artist at Riot you will bring characters and creatures to life. Drawing inspiration from as little as a napkin sketch or as much as a full-blown narrative concept, you will generate ideas and craft designs that are resonant, compelling and iconic. As a problem solver, first and foremost, you will help come up with visual solutions for game concepts.

As the Art Lead, Concept Art, reporting to the Senior Manager, Art Direction for the Legends of Runeterra team, your concept art craft expertise, leadership, and eye for illustration will help deliver deep engagement and rich fantasy worlds to our players. By closely collaborating with a team of dedicated concept artists, illustrators, writers, animators and game developers, you will help define each character’s unique place in our universe. You will deepen the artists’ capacity for quality, mediate and resolve craft disagreements and misalignments, and prioritize the craft team’s health. You will build trust with the artists on the team and support their career growth while improving craft workflows. You will partner with the Delivery Lead and Illustration Lead to drive effective external contractor management, feedback flows, and the timely delivery of high quality illustration. You will work with producers, art leadership, and partner teams to ensure final card art effectively promotes and aligns with various champions and the world of Runeterra. You will maintain your own craft skills, inspire creativity, and keep a high quality bar by personally helping to produce character and occasional environment concept art.
