An Insider's view of IllFonic

What's something quirky about your company?

At IllFonic, we use a program called Slack to message each other. People generally use a picture of themselves as their profile picture on Slack so that they are easily identifiable. Dan, however, uses a picture of a cartoon man throwing up rainbows. I guess that's what it's like to work at IllFonic. It would be hard not to have fun here.

Aron

Community Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Making games is hard. Everyday brings a new challenge to invest in and overcome together. IllFonic gives me the opportunity to work on what I'm passionate about. To focus on the areas I care about. To make sure my voice is heard.
When we ship a title, it truly feels like MY game. It's a blast to be part of this team. Everyday."

Lucas

Lead Engineer

What are some things you learned at the company?

I have learned about all it takes to create a video game from an idea to a finished product, and the amount of passion that goes into that process. IllFonic is full of talented individuals who make coming to work fun.

Dee Dee

HR Director

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

Accessibility is reliant upon communication. It is essential to really listen to ideas and imagine how those ideas would affect other departments, and ultimately the overall project. Animation is the act of bringing a character to life; so naturally, I enjoy learning about the lives of the characters that I work with as well.

Dojun

Lead Animator

What are some social events your company does?

Every now and then IllFonic likes to kick back and take everyone out to see a movie, that has been a nice way to relax and get inspired for projects we have on deck. During the holiday seasons our HR director does an amazing job putting together various parties and events that really helps us cut loose and bond as a team.
