Karolina Jacobsson

Junior 2D Artist @ Hunted Cow

Hi! I’m a Junior 2D artist at Hunted Cow. Before I moved to the frigid north, I interned at Failbetter Games in London and spent years freelancing. I specialise in illustration and concept art work, but over the years I’ve dabbled in anything from 3d modeling, to animation to video editing. In a previous life I used to be a diving instructor and now look fondly out the window, as I sit in a warm office and am not subjected to the whims of scottish weather.

I’m Sam, a Front-End Unity Developer with Hunted Cow Studios. A lot of my professional experience lies in UI implementation and free to play mobile titles as well as having worked on an MMORPG. Aside from the more technical aspects of my work, I also have a healthy curiosity in the creative side of the industry having worked closely with colleagues dealing with art and content.
