Role and Purpose

Sumo Digital are delighted to announce the return of our Game Art placement scheme for the academic year 2017/2018.


The scheme is open to promising Art undergraduates at any UK university who require an industrial placement in their third year, and we’d love to hear from exceptional artists in a variety of areas – UI, Character, VFX, Environment and Animation.

The scheme offers a fantastic opportunity for talented students to work on and contribute to our live AAA projects, while learning from our hugely talented team. We value highly the contribution that exceptional, undergraduate raw talent can bring to our studio and many undergraduates that have spent their placement year with us have returned to full time employment after graduation. 

Applicants must have a passion for videogame art and be averaging a 1st classification in their studies with an exceptional portfolio showcasing their digital and traditional art skills.

The placement will run from September 2017 – September 2018 (with some flexibility).


Closing date for applications: Friday 24th February 2017. Interviews will be held in March/April 2016, and placements offered in May 2016.
