Marketing Artist FUTUREPLAY GAMES / Helsinki
PUBLISHED: November 2, 2020
Futureplay is a five-year-old independent Finnish mobile game studio located in Helsinki. We’re a small, experienced, and committed group of 35 people working hard to create great mobile games that last. Our latest release, Merge Gardens, is on track to become a global hit, whilst our portfolio also includes genre stalwarts like Battlelands Royale and Idle Farming Empire.
We’re now on the lookout for an Illustrator – Marketing Art with a focus on illustration and graphic design to join our team and help us take our marketing art to the next level.
We expect a minimum of 2 years of experience in creating marketing art, ideally in the gaming industry. You’ll have a track record of producing proven quality when it comes to all things illustration and graphic design, and you’re ready to apply your expertise and creativity to the production of a wide range of standout content across different media. Though you’re a creative at heart, you’re interested in seeing how your work impacts product and business growth. You enjoy working as part of a team, but have a proactive approach with a hunger to take responsibility on an individual level.
On a day-to-day basis you will be working closely with marketing and game teams to take initiative and ownership of marketing content creation in line with game development timelines. You’ll produce static assets and marketing art compositions that will be used across social media, user acquisition, app stores and also in-game. You will also be working quickly to repurpose content in order to efficiently deliver across multiple platforms, and you’ll be taking ownership in defining a strong IP, consistent brand and clear vision throughout your work. Existing skills in video production and editing are a bonus, but as a minimum you should have a willingness to learn and grow in this area.
Previous experience in, or understanding what it takes to, work in a minimum hierarchy environment and the ability to independently manage your tasks and responsibilities are a must. Having an agile mindset and love for experimentation are needed. You should also have great team working skills combined with the ability to provide and receive candid feedback.

At Futureplay, we’re a bunch of free-spirited individuals who get our kicks out of creating great mobile games loved by players the world over.
We launched in 2015 with a vision to release the right games at the right time, ship quickly, and work smart. In the short years since we’ve grown to more than 35 people and our five games have been played more than 125 million times – but more importantly we’ve stayed true to our flat hierarchy.
And we’re big on that: being flat means we’re lean, streamlined and committed to protecting ourselves from hellish corporate structures like middle management. We each own a piece of the company, and every day we all put our heart and soul into making Futureplay that little bit better, with an unrelenting focus on results over processes and taking action. In short? We get shit done.
Building on the success of our Idle Empire portfolio, our game Battlelands Royale was named one of Google Play’s best games of the year. We currently have multiple projects across different genres in early development, and our latest release Merge Gardens, launched autumn 2020, is set to be our biggest hit yet.
