We work with
today's greatest
game developers
to create worlds
of wonder.

Our team is tight and its skills are sharp. That’s the starting point for everything we do. People who care about each other and the work they’re producing as a collective. Work that is the very best in cutting-edge creative conceptualisation, visualisation, and realisation; projects that span the journey from drawing board to release, and beyond.

Our Studios


In our UK home, we unite art and design specialists from every continent (except Antarctica!). With 30+ projects running at any time, we’re proud of our creative excellence, tailored project management and deeply collaborative approach. Our team of over 50 artists and designers cover Concept Art, 2D Game Art, Animation and 3D, supporting game development at every stage. We’re creative partnership experts, with long-standing relationships with clients on world renowned IPs.

We asked the team for their thoughts on the studio’s culture. They say people are the defining element – plus the down-to-earth, friendly vibe and welcoming social scene they’ve created. The team’s diversity, professional support, and development opportunities, and the UK as a place to live are just a few other factors that shape our brilliant culture.


A remote-first team, Atomhawk Advance also has a base in Leamington Spa, England. Our DNA runs with classic Atomhawk excellence. We support game development studios with specialist disciplines, bringing expertise to hard-to-fill roles with tangible, immediate impact. With a heavy focus on R&D and Tech, our veteran game developers are equipped for all aspects of the video game development process with our Technical Art and UI/UX teams, embedding into clients’ pipelines and hitting the ground running.

Our culture is built around honesty and transparency; everyone has a voice, and every voice is heard. A varied, exciting project list means our team keeps their talent sharp while spreading their wings, acquiring new skills and experiences. Whether it’s AAA projects with global studios, or indie darlings, Atomhawk Advance reaches everyone.


Vancouver based, and working with creatives across Canada, our studio prioritises collaboration and communication as the two essential pillars of a great working relationship. The studio’s location is invaluable, letting us work in real-time with our North American clients. It means we can operate as a true extension of our clients’ internal teams, contributing as a highly valued partner at every stage of the creative development process.

A dedicated ‘artist first’ approach informs every piece of work to leave the Canada studio. The belief that high quality creative output is directly connected to feeling empowered and supported in our day-to-day work and long-term career goals, is foundational to our way of working. This culture of collaboration and professional development within the group means we’re always stronger as a team than any of us would be on our own.

Our clients trust us to deliver great stuff on time, every time. That trust is valuable, so we look after it with the highest standard of planning and precision. We don’t just stay up to date, we stay a step ahead, in the know and open to learning more.

We want to do the best work of our lives today, and then again tomorrow. Each of us brings something unique to the process. We’re a large team so we can deliver brilliance at scale. We have diverse talent, diverse experience, diverse skills, and that expansive range is what lets us articulate incredible ideas in a multitude of unbelievable ways.

Our Locations

Gateshead, UK

In the centre of North East England’s art scene, on the Gateshead quayside, the studio is flanked by galleries and theatres, live music venues, pulsing nightlife, and eclectic shopping. Newcastle’s three minutes on foot, the beach is 15 minutes by Metro, and (it’s a cliché but it’s true) the people are super friendly.

Vancouver, Canada

In the heart of Vancouver, where the skyscrapers are overshadowed only by snow-topped mountains, our studio sits amid bars and restaurants, art, and music venues. Known for its sheer liveability, the seaport city boasts an enviable mix of urban refinement and the awe-inspiring natural world.

Leamington Spa, UK

Wide boulevards, stunning architecture and award-winning parks provide a sophisticated backdrop to this Regency town. Leamington Spa combines a treasure-trove of independent, specialist boutiques alongside high street brands and a huge variety of eating experiences.

“We worked with Atomhawk developing a range of concept material for the Apple Design Award winning ‘Little Orpheus’. They always come through for us, and are a pleasure to work with – and the results were terrific as always!”
