Personal development at Goodgame Academy

Goodgame Studios has developed tremendously in many different areas over the last few years.

Many of them design the figures and landscapes in the games and are responsible for giving each game its own individual personality. Less well known is that the company itself is also given a unique identity in terms of visual representation. Taking care of this we have a whole team known as Corporate Branding and Concepts. It is their mission to turn ideas into creative concepts and printed and manufactured products in order to create a corporate image for Goodgame Studios. “We’re like an advertising agency, but positioned within the company,” explain the designers.
