London V&A museum offering games developer residency

London’s Victoria and Albert art and design museum is seeking applicants to hold a games design residency.

The position is planned to run for six months, with a follow-up period of Abertay University in order to create games based on its collections.

“Games design is a growing industry in the UK and Britain is now one of the leaders in the world in this field,” said the V&A’s Ruth Lloyd. “It is a highly skilled form of design that requires both creative and scientific skills.

“The V&A’s first games design residency is an exciting opportunity for the Museum to recognise and support this form of design and will offer a games designer access to specialist expertise as well as use of the V&A’s extraordinary collections as creative inspiration to produce new work.”

The chosen designer will work in response to the museum’s 1500 – 1900 Britain galleries, with a salary, studio, bursary and industry mentor thrown in to assist. Applications are open until February 4, with the position said to suit developers in the early-to-mid stages of their careers.
