Looking For New Card Designers

Greetings SWCCG players,

We have a very exciting announcement to share with you all! Design is looking to add some fresh and innovative minds to our Design Team, and we are now accepting applications from players interested in lending their creative skills to the PC. This request is open to all players of any experience level.

We are looking for a person with the following skills:

  • Demonstrated creativity in game design
  • Understanding of restrictions on design space, such as text limits, design guidelines, and potential negative interactions
  • Ability to work well in a cross-functional role
  • Willingness to compromise, work well on a team
  • Frequent availability to contribute to discussion
  • In-depth familiarity with the larger Star Wars universe (primarily canon), especially the movies, TV shows, and recent novels/comics

Please provide the following information to communications@starwarsccg.org no later than Thursday, May 11th May 18th.

1) Name and forum username

2) How long have you been playing SWCCG?

3) What makes you a good fit for the design team? What relevant experience do you have, or what do you bring to the table?

4) Please provide the following design samples that you have created yourself, and that showcase your ability to be a good designer:

a) Main character

b) Useful utility interrupt

c) Location that currently does not exist in SWCCG

d) 5-7 card theme to introduce to SWCCG. This could be a completely new theme from any era in Star Wars, a revised version of a legacy theme, or a new, inventive way to play an existing decktype. You may not submit more than 7 cards for your theme. 2 sided cards only count for 1 card. Only provide the essential cards for the theme to function, such as locations, epic events, effects, or crucial characters. If you have all essential cards in < 7 cards, you may (but are not required to) submit optional additions as well.

e) One other card that you didn’t already provide above

This position is a 1 year position. With the Design and Development team’s agile process, this position does not guarantee you a certain number of cards to be released. Instead, you will work with other designers on filling the design library from all eras of Star Wars, creating the best cards possible, and sending the best cards/themes to development for review.

If you have specific questions about this role, feel free to PM the Design Advocate Matt Carulli at quickdraw3457.

Q: Does this role include creating images for cards?
A: No, that would be graphic design. This is strictly designing the cards’ game texts, stats, and names.

Q: What is the expected time commitment for this position?
A: You would be required to check and contribute to the design forums regularly (multiple times per week, preferably daily), but much of the work (designing cards) could be done offline and then posted to the design forums.

Thank you and MTFBWY!
