Welcome to the site!

Hi there! My name is Arron Simpson - and this is my portfolio website. I've worked in the videogames industry for more than 12 years, and now work as a Lead Artist at Riot Games.  Previously, I worked as Art Director at Kixeye and Paragon Studios, Lead Artist at eeGeo, and Art Director of APB for Realtime Worlds. 

Background

I have had the opportunity to art direct across a range of game types, of differing styles and production scales. I've very much enjoyed having that opportunity, and it's given me a broad view of the games industry - as well as giving me some diverse skills and knowledge.

For the last 4 years, I've been working in the Bay Area of California - initially for Paragon Studios and Kixeye - now for Riot Games.

Previously, I worked in Scotland for eeGeo and Realtime Worlds. At Realtime Worlds, I was Art Director on APB - a large-scale urban combat mmo. We achieved some excellent results on the art side of things with APB. We created a groundbreaking customisation system for characters, vehicles and graphic symbols, as well as creating a game with a high standard of visual quality for this type of title. This type being a large-scale persistent online multiplayer action game, with a huge city play space, allowing for 100 players, all with unique character and vehicle models.
