Riot Visual Designers seek to craft the best player experiences through their knowledge of systemic design, graphic design, interactivity, layout, typography, color theory and illustration. Designers collaborate with cross disciplinary teams and act as both artistic and design problem solvers. They understand players and ask questions about the what, who and how when solving for an interface or communication challenge. 

As a Visual Designer on the Consumer Products team, you will work in partnership with the Art Director and other 2D/3D artists to help shape the art style for our consumer products, marketing, and apparel lines.
