While I no longer get to design ticket art, I really enjoy the challenge of creating the grids and templates the artists use to do their jobs and following through to make sure their work gets to the next step. My favorite part of working at American Games has to be that whatever challenges come up we work as a team to find solutions to get the job done.”

Prior to joining the company, it was difficult to grasp my sense of worth as an artist. With Diamond Game, I have finally found a family that values my contributions. I feel like a branch adding an extension to a fruitful tree full of many branches.”

format_quote“Here in the Pressroom at Diamond Game, we as a team have implemented some initiatives that have made a positive impression on the culture of our team. First, we implemented a “War on Waste”; this was to lower our overconsumption of consumables. Next, the team came up with a concept of “Nothing gets past the Twenty”; this was to curb our defect ratio which took us from 30 defects to zero defects within two years. There was a lot of collaborative effort and camaraderie involved as a team to accomplish this.”
