Atomhawk is a leading art and design studio providing creative services to game, film and digital media.
It was was founded in 2009 by four ex-Midway developers. Since then the team has since grown to 20 people and it includes some of the industry’s best artists and designers. It has worked on more than 20 projects including games such as Mortal Kombat, Driver, Dead Island, Devil May Cry, Enslaved and most recently Injustice for Warner Bros.
It has also worked on J.K Rowling’s online Harry Potter experience “Pottermore” for the past three years and it has provided concept art for a number of blockbuster Hollywood movies.
Its new co-development venture, The Realm, is currently running on Kickstarter. Atomhawk, which is working with Lantern Interactive, has designed an entire universe, branding, marketing art, trailer and pitch video which pretty much used all of the studio’s different skills.
Atomhawk co-founder Cumron Ashtiani said:
“We joined TIGA to help support our industry and give a little back in the form of our membership and skills. TIGA has done so much for the UK games scene, especially fighting the tax break fight when some of us thought all was lost. Also their continued voice in government is a much needed outlet to make sure we are all heard”
Dr Richard Wilson, CEO of TIGA, said:
“Cumron Ashtiani tells us that once you have been involved in making a great game, it is hard to get that thrill out of your system. It is wonderful to see Atomhawk making an impact in the gaming industry, providing exceptional art and design skill. We warmly welcome Atomhawk as TIGA members.”
