KIRARITO, a MIRAISHONEN Company, Starts a Crowdsourcing Web Site "graphicker", Specialized in Graphic Design Jobs in 4 Languages in August, Which Enables Global Job Matching Between Graphic Designers and Game Developers

KIRARITO, a MIRAISHONEN company, one of Japan’s biggest game graphic solutions provider, headquartered in Shibuya, Tokyo, announced that it would start graphicker (http://graphicker.me), a crowdsourcing web site specializing in graphic design jobs, which globally matches graphic designers and game developers, in August.

Background:
As the smartphone game market has expanded and such games have become more and more complex, demand for graphic design work for smartphone game development has constantly grown and the types of design work needed have become more varied, such as from just 2D to including 3D graphics. As a result, it is said that game developers regularly outsource graphic design work, and that almost 20% of the development cost is now allocated to such an outsourcing.

Whether a game developer can procure graphic design work of required quality and quantity at appropriate cost in a timely manner or not is now a vital issue in terms of the game’s timely release and success. On the other hand, graphic design work has become more specialized, therefore finding jobs that fit to their expertise and strength at general job matching sites has become far more difficult than before. graphicker (http://graphicker.me), which is specialized in graphic design and focusing game industry with big and growing demand, will be the answer to both parties.

About graphicker:
graphicker (http://graphicker.me), which enables simple and speedy procurement of graphic design work, targeting all the game developers and graphic designers in the world, will start its service in August with 4 language versions (English, Japanese, Chinese and Korean). Prior to its start, 5 big graphic solution providers and approximately 50 famous graphic designers have already expressed their intention to register. graphicker will enable game developers to find quality designers from all over the world in a timely manner, and enable graphic designer to approach all the game developers in the world showing their skills and achievements.

graphicker.me starts its service in August, 2014, with expectations of 100,000 registered users in 12 months and monthly trading volume of 50,000,000 JPY. Prior to its start of the service, their web site will offer user registration and information on its service details as any update come in.
