As a Motion Graphics Artist at Riot, you'll take the player experience to the next level by  creating high-quality motion graphics for our gameplay and systems. Your technical skill for motion and compositing will breathe life into the game, transforming static scenes into powerful moments for players. You will collaborate with other artists and designers to establish how assets and UI elements will respond, transition, and increase player immersion.

Motion Graphics artists on Teamfight Tactics are responsible for bringing the game’s UI to life. We work closely with other disciplines to enhance the player’s experience with things like in-game HUD, ceremonies, battlepass, and more. You will contribute to the game’s development by working with familiar animation tools like After Effects, and new tools like Riot’s proprietary League game engine.

  • Be a champion of the TFT x League of Legends motion graphics style
  • Use proprietary tools to create animations for TFT

For this role, you'll find success through craft expertise, a collaborative spirit, and decision-making that prioritizes the delight of players.

If you embody player empathy and care about the experiences of players, this could be the role for you!
