OVERVIEW

The integration artist is the pivot point between programmers and artists. The primary role of the integration artist is to complete the asset integration pipeline, which is to take assets coming from external software suites, importing them and assembling them into the development environment of the team (Unity3d). The integration artist also has the secondary role of creating content where traditional artists or programmers cannot intervene : material creation, shaders, VFX, etc. In short, any work combining technical and artistic abilities.

FUNCTION
