Job Description

In 2009, Riot released its debut title League of Legends and has since gone on to become the most played PC game in the world and a key driver of the explosive growth of esports. Delivering visually stunning experiences for a global audience while also building new games gives artists exciting and complex problems to solve. Here, artists are working not only with one another, but also side-by-side with game designers, narrative writers, and audio designers and engineers to ensure that each piece of content from Riot reaches the level of quality players deserve. From animations to illustrations, cinematics to comics, characters to environments, we work as a team to put players first.

Riot Visual Designers seek to craft the best player experiences through their knowledge of systemic design, graphic design, interactivity, layout, typography, color theory and illustration. Designers collaborate with cross disciplinary teams and act as both artistic and design problem solvers. They understand players and ask questions about the what, who and how when solving for an interface or communication challenge.

As a Visual Design Intern, you may:

* Work cross functionally to execute the creative vision and strategy for your initiative
* Create visually balanced and intuitive interfaces that show a strong grasp of readability, hierarchy, platform and player behavior patterns
* Extend themes throughout the project establishing style guides and conventions
* Understand concepts and process behind the guides, but also know when to break the rules
* Able to identify and solve issues impacting the quality of work
* Experiment with styles
* Design beyond the latest trends
* Maintain the quality bar for your discipline
* Review your work and prioritize changes
* Understand flexible and scalable layouts
* Work with a wide range of styles
* Innovate off existing assets
* Possess a growth mindset, seeking mentorship from the discipline artists and community

Internship Qualifications

* Enrolled in a college, university or non degree program
* Returning for at least one more term following the internship
* Available to work full-time hours for 10-12 weeks at the indicated office during the summer
* Authorized to work in the U.S.

Applicable Technologies:

* Adobe Creative Suite

For this role, you'll find success through craft expertise, a collaborative spirit, and decision-making that prioritizes the delight of players. We will certainly be looking at your past studies and experience, but for this role, we also look for dedicated people with a personal relationship with games. If you embody player empathy and care about the experiences of players, this could be the role for you!

Our Perks:

Riot Internships are paid, and we offer relocation and housing support. You can expect subsidized meals and the ability to participate in our Play Fund, so you can broaden and deepen your knowledge of our players and community through games. The University Programs team also invites you to intern focused events so you can connect with your fellow interns and Rioters to make the most out of your experience.
