• Balance thinking about the macro view of Fortnite's visual design and the micro view of how the newly established vision is articulated in the small details in a cohesive way.
• Work closely with UX, game design, code, audio, and animation to create beautiful looking UI and graphic design elements that compliment what the rest of the team is creating.
• Think about and plan for how visual design needs to change across diverse range of platforms.

• You design at a high level. Your work shows your ability to craft design systems that solve complex problem spaces and guide entire products.
• A strong portfolio showing your work and insight into your process. Your work should show your ability to balance contrast, hierarchy, alignment, color, and composition into quality visual and interactive designs.
• You're highly proactive and able to work autonomously, but really enjoy collaborating as part of a high performing team.
• You have a passion for making and playing games.
• You have excellent written and verbal communication skills.
