We’re Playdead, an independent game company based in the heart of Copenhagen, Denmark. We have made two critically acclaimed titles, LIMBO and INSIDE. Our current project is a 3rd-person science fiction adventure set in a remote corner of the universe.

Playdead is looking for a skilled Graphic Designer with a love for creative storytelling in the social space.

You will join a group of talented people in a production environment where independence, productivity, and initiative are highly valued.

We expect that you will be equally comfortable listening to input from a broad creative team and bringing your own creative perspectives to the table.

We work with a sense of rhythm that allows you the creative space to produce high fidelity content even during tight turnarounds.


What will I be doing?

  • Creating and editing video for trailers, commercial, b-roll, sizzle reels etc.
  • Graphic design covering everything from web design, assets, social media and storefronts
  • Working closely with another Designer to conceptualise and design the visual identity of Playdead as well as building templates for general use
  • Collaborating across Playdead on other design related tasks

What we would like to see

  • Professional digital design experience translating concepts, scripts and abstract ideas into compelling graphics and audio
  • Knowledge of layouts, graphic fundamentals, typography, video editing, and web design
  • A strong portfolio showing a clean and clear style
  • Proficiency with Adobe Creative Cloud
  • Bonus points if you have worked with Flash/HTML/CSS
