Move38’s Department of Games is looking for a multi-disciplinary Visual Designer/Game Designer to help us create the worlds our games will inhabit. We're looking for a passionate and creative individual to build on the strong visual identity of the Blinks game system and communicate the value it brings to a growing community. This role will report to the Director of Games.
At Move38, we know that play shapes the way we think. The tools and toys we play with are imbued with the power to teach new skills and refine the ones we already possess. Toys are not simply child's play, but essential objects to think with and navigate our complex world. We entrust toys to teach our children fundamental physics, and more importantly, they encourage social engagement, helping us interact with each other, hands-on, and face-to-face. The social intimacy of play drives us to create. Our mission is to delight hands, challenge minds, and inspire curiosity.
Our small but tight-knit team primarily creates Blinks, the world's first smart tabletop game system. There are over 30 games on the Blinks game system platform, most of them developed by our community.
