Gaming job: Storyboard artist

 Storyboard artists visually develop the entire story of a video game.

Working closely with the video game's producers and writers, storyboard artists plot out the entire story of a game. Focusing on the narrative arc, the storyboard artist will map out events and challenges with a series of images that illustrate the world of the game, its characters and their individual journeys. The designers will then work to this as they build the game.

Good to Know: This role often attracts those with experience in other creative industries, such as scriptwriting.

Skillsets: Strong visual skills / Ability to work in a team / Attention to detail

Salary: Junior storyboard artists earn an average of £18,000 while experienced storyboard artists will earn almost double that.
