Additive is the portfolio site of Jaume Mora, an art director and graphic designer based in L.A.
Since he was young, Jaume would dedicate most of his time to creative projects that would allow him to express himself through fun activities. He had a natural talent for drawing and illustration. This eventually led to pursuing a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Barcelona, another in Animation & Interactive Design, and finally, a Masters in Graphic and Digital Design from the Media Arts Institute in Barcelona.
He spent 10 years in the trenches of the Digital Media industry working as a versatile designer in virtually every medium he could get his hands on. He had the chance to work with some of the top directors and creatives at the best studios and agencies in the industry as well as with many leading companies like Nike, Microsoft, Disney/Pixar, Converse, Konami, Nickelodeon, and Verizon amongst many others on high profile web, video and print campaigns.
Having been a video game lover since he was very young, around 2010 Jaume started thinking about a change. In the following two years, he split his efforts between the digital media and the games industries and by 2012 he decided to switch and start applying his skills and expertise on UIX, visual design, and art direction for video games where he has worked ever since at companies like 4mm Games, Gameloft, Insomniac Games, Blockade Games, Blind Squirrel Games, Tencent (LSLA), and Playgig on both mobile as well as AAA games for PC, consoles, and VR.
His work is featured in games like Zombiewood, Ice Age Village, Cars: Fast as Lightning, Spider-Man Unlimited, Outernauts, Sunset Overdrive, Ratchet, and Clank PS4, Edge of Nowhere, Feral Rites, Spider-Man PS4, Neon District, as well as in a variety of other titles yet to be released.
Jaume’s multidisciplinary training and strong creative and strategic thinking skills allow him to work across media and deliver fresh, innovative, and engaging solutions for any project he is involved in. He’s always striving for excellence in his work and continuously searching for the next challenge.

Twentytwo years creating experiences for world-class consumer and video game brands.
My career has been shaped by a multidisciplinary education and the drive to become the best professional I could be on every milestone that I hit. This has led me to gain expertise in a wide range of disciplines like art direction, design, illustration, animation, photography, and, recently, undertaking filmmaking.
Combining strategic thinking, creative concept, user experience, and design with a deep understanding of visual language and technology allows me to carry any project from ideation to execution, turning complex ideas into sophisticated and entertaining experiences. I’m always looking for a challenge that will allow me to develop my skills as a creative and push the standards and boundaries of any medium that I work in.
I have always had a knack for teamwork. I thrive in building and nurturing teams and talent, being a pillar on which colleagues can rely upon and look up to for direction as well as keeping myself humbled and surrounded by people who can teach and challenge me allowing me to continue curbing my skills and knowledge day after day.
