  • What is 3D Game Design?

    3D game design is a multi-dimensional field encompassing character artistry, level design, textures, animation, and more! Once you lay the groundwork at iD Tech, you’ll be on your way to pursuing whatever aspect of 3D game design fascinates you the most. Check out some of the most popular careers in 3D game design.

    Character Artist

    Design the heroes, heroines, friends, foes, and miscellaneous creatures within the game! Character Artists are responsible for putting a “face” to the game—very important work!

    Level Designer

    Tasked with “setting the mood” for the whole game, Level Designers reinforce the game’s storyline through backgrounds, atmospheres, and scenes. Level designs can be as iconic as character designs—a keen eye for aesthetics is a must.

    Texture Artist

    Texture Artists bring 3D models to life, allowing players to get fully immersed in realistic gameplay. These folks make the metal shine, the water sparkle, the clothing look rugged, and so on.


    A realistic looking character isn’t complete until it can move in a natural way. Animators dictate character motions (ie. running, dancing, laughing, climbing), car chases, explosions, and much more.
