In this speaker spotlight, we chatted with Justyna Gil. Gil has been in the mobile gaming industry for almost three years, working on titles such as Bladebound, Tales: Choose Your Own Story and the HOPA games published by Artifex Mundi.
Her main area of interest is concept art and illustration, though she finds it challenging and struggles with leading an art direction when being in a marketing team. Justyna holds an BA in Western Painting and Chinese Language and Literature from Dongguk University in Seoul. The experience of studying in South Korea for five years has made her try to raise awareness of the importance of properly localised store assets for mobile games.
At Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki 2019 she'll be presenting a session entitled ASO – Creating Compelling Visual Store Assets While Being a Publisher.
