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 and this eventually lead to pursuing a degree in Fine Arts by the University of Barcelona, another in Animation & Interactive Design and finally, a Masters in Graphic and Digital Design by 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 Ui and visual design for video games where he has worked ever since at companies like 4mm Games, Gameloft and Insomniac Games on both mobile as well as AAA games for PC and consoles.
His work is featured on games like Zombiewood, Ice Age Village, Cars: Fast as Lightning, Spider-Man Unlimited, Outernauts, Sunset Overdrive, Ratchet and Clank, Edge of Nowhere, Feral Rites and the upcoming exclusive PS4 title Spider-Man.
Jaume’s multidisciplinary training and strong creative and strategic thinking skills allow him to work accross 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 in continuous search for the next challenge.
