At the end of the month I’ll be starting my new job as a Game Designer on Hearthstone. I’d love to talk about the excellent design tests I took in the process, but I can’t. Instead, I’ll show you a little something I brought of my own volition to my interivew.
I was thinking about ways I could stand out in an interview by showcasing my design, so I decided to turn the hard/soft skill section of my resume into Hearthstone cards. My criteria for them was…
1) They had to look like hearthstone cards, including in design style.
2) They should be designed to bring a smile to the person quickly thumbing through them.
3) The theme had to shine through. If I couldn’t make a theme fit, I just decided not to make it into a card.
Here’s what I came up with. Dungeonmaster was a fringe include I admit, but at game companies it often is a very desirable skill.
