Ian Parovel is joining Board Game Arena team

Post by sourisdudesert » 08 June 2020, 13:27

We are pleased to announced officially that Ian Parovel is joining Board Game Arena as Art Director.

"Officially", because Ian is working with BGA for a long time now. He contributed to make BGA easier to use and accessible for the many, while keeping the spirit of the service and all its successful features - which is like squaring the circle.

Ian is a board game and video game veteran, and contributed to many successful titles, especially at Ludonautes or Happy Baobab.

With this new talent on board, Board Game Arena is going up to the next level and you can expect many improvements on the quality, the design and the ergonomics of the service. Ian is jack of all trades and he is preparing you a lot of surprises that you will discover over time ;)

I'd like to take advantage of this recruitment to thank, once again, all of those who are contributing to this service in one way or another. We are a very small team (we were only 2, now we are only 3...) and the players who are helping us with the development, the moderation or the translation ((full list there)) are absolutely essential to this service: thanks to all of them!

"Art Director" sounds like a very promising position here. I think there a lots of areas which could benefit from a graphic overhaul.

Are there any plans on contacting the license holders about updated graphics for the game art, maybe? I would expect that some of the licensed graphics have been supplied ages ago and the screen size, image compression algorithms and available bandwidth of the average user has evolved over time.

There is a big room for improvements on design almost everywhere on BGA, including there, so we do agree.
