Video Game Art Directors
Computer and video game developers will always need talented artists to produce their programs. People who can quickly and creatively generate new concepts and ideas will be in high demand. The International Game Developers Association reports that as art and design teams grow larger, the need for skilled video game art directors will grow as well. Game visuals have become more technical in nature, blurring the line between programmer and artist. Video game art directors, too, need to become more technical and be able to stay on top of emerging technologies that allow for cutting-edge visual effects.
