Transformers Trading Card Game Job Posting: Graphic Designer - Transformers News - TFW2005
...ohmigosh i finally found the trading card game in stock at target and i'm so excited to open them this weekend!..starter deck, six boosters, and metroplex should be enough to play the full game with my wife, i think...
...if not her, i guess it's just me and the cats... =\
...i really enjoyed magic: the gathering back when it first came out, but i haven't played any CCGs since selling off all my beta, arabian knights, antiquities, and legends sets to pay rent during the dot-com crash...
Too bad I already have a great Graphic Design job. Why does this stuff never pop up during unemployment? XD
Isn’t the best time to look for a job when you already have one?
Man, I’d love to go out for this, but am probably over-qualified (I’m an Art Director) and have no interest in commuting from North Seattle to the south end where Wizards is.
I do need to pull together my portfolio though, it’s been like a decade
graphic designer for what exactly? isnt this care came just reusing artworks from generations, the mobile card game, and comic pages? what are you supposed to do when all the work is already DONE?
Typically a Graphic Designer wouldn’t create the illustrations, illustrators do that
but the layout of the cards, design of icons, how the Illustrations are cropped, type of paper the cards are printed on, any printing effects (glosses/foils/spot inks) the way the packaging looks, the way the boxes are die cut, the way they fold, how they show off the product, what is emphasized, all the typography, etc, that is what the Designer does: plus mock ups, press checks, and all that fun jazz... oh, and advertisements, web graphics....
Whaddup, an illustrator here. Artiepants has got that down perfectly. Illustrators and photographers create the assets, graphic designers usually do.. literally everything else. In house illustrators basically don't exist though, so Hasbro/wizards will probably get freelancers or recycle work they already own.
They already have card artists. Both are well known
One of their job listings a few months ago was for an art director. They've also said that while the first wave was mostly re-used art, they've been commissioning art for upcoming waves. You can already see some of those earliest commissions in the Metroplex deck.
Not sure if this is 100% solid, but after reading a thread on a TF TCG group, apparently the next starter set is named Megatron vs Bumblebee. Transformers: Bumblebee vs Megatron Starter - Alphaspel (pardon as it is in a foreign language)
I kind of hope it's not. I'd like for a bit more focused starter with more synergy for new players to explore before having to buy more cards. Doing a pure decepticon starter would be nice too. I guess until we get official word I'll keep hope out for a Reflector starter or a Soundwave and minicassettes starter. I really preferred learning the game with Metroplex than with the Autobot starter. We'll have to see though I guess.
...yeah, i really need more decepticons for a balanced two-player game, preferably without having to go overboard on the booster-pack lottery...
You know that faction doesn’t lock you in to deck choices? You can have autobots and deceptcons in the same deck.
I think since they were referring to booster packs they just meant they'd like to have access to cons through some precon deck available.
...yeah, but where's the fun in that?..i always built my magic decks around thematic concepts, not min-max game mechanics...

...bought four more booster packs last night after watching bumblebee, got sunstorm, megatron, barrage, and jazz: my available autobots and decepticons are now balanced!.. =D
Adding to what was said earlier, i found a listing online for the new starter set.
Theres a new starter set listed on this website? I can’t find info on it anywhere else, a megatron vs bumblebee starter set?
