KIRARITO, a MIRAISHONEN company, one of Japan's biggest game graphic
solutions provider, headquartered in Shibuya, Tokyo, announced that it
would start graphicker (http://graphicker.me),
a crowdsourcing web site specializing in graphic design jobs, which
globally matches graphic designers and game developers, in August.
Background:As the smartphone game market has expanded and such
games have become more and more complex, demand for graphic design work
for smartphone game development has constantly grown and the types of
design work needed have become more varied, such as from just 2D to
including 3D graphics. As a result, it is said that game developers
regularly outsource graphic design work, and that almost 20% of the
development cost is now allocated to such an outsourcing.
Whether a game developer can procure graphic design work of required
quality and quantity at appropriate cost in a timely manner or not is
now a vital issue in terms of the game's timely release and success. On
the other hand, graphic design work has become more specialized,
therefore finding jobs that fit to their expertise and strength at
general job matching sites has become far more difficult than before.
which is specialized in graphic design and focusing game industry with
big and growing demand, will be the answer to both parties.
