(Technical) Art Director

Job description

As our (Technical) Art Director for Grip you provide input and art direction to all the photo-realistic content that is created in our in-house 3D studio. With your photography knowledge you know what makes an image appealing and you make sure we can deliver the best quality to our clients, aligning on their creative strategy. You understand what a technically and visually good image is. It’s a real mix of QA (technical requirements) as well as creative (beautiful content). Basic understanding of 3D is very helpful in this role in order to translate client needs to our internal team.

About INDG

At INDG we develop technology that enables engaging, hyper-realistic digital product experiences. Our goal is to make "every product playable", by combining the science of technology with the artistry of computer-generated content. Our offices are in Amsterdam, Bucharest and New York. Clients include Adidas, Yamaha, Ralph Lauren, Electrolux, and Philips.

Our CG artists, interactive designers, and developers focus on creating virtual versions of our clients' products, so lifelike it feels like you could reach out and touch them.

Our culture brings together creative, tech and business individuals. It’s a heady cocktail that keeps us inspired, empowered and passionate.

What’s Grip?

Grip supports brands to cope with the fast-accelerating challenge of the exponential grow and need for content. Grip is web-based software that automatically generates visual content. It’s based on photorealistic 3D, capitalising on INDG’s twenty-year-long experience in that field. 3D is good because once your beer or your juicer or your rocket is on Grip, it can be used and re-used for multiple media: images, videos, iOS apps, and such.
