Hi, I’m Mike – welcome to my site

Hi, I’m Mike. I’ve been working in the film and games industry for ten years as a concept designer. In that time I’ve founded and managed Karakter, an Emmy award winning design studio.

 During my time as Managing Director, the studio worked on projects such as Game of Thrones, Killzone Shadow Fall and Horizon Zero Dawn amongst others.

Karakter was a fantastic experience, and in 2013 I left my managerial responsibilities to pursue my own interests – amongst them, film design and story theory.  In that time I have created several educational seminars for Industry Workshops and Trojan Horse was a Unicorn

In recent years I have created concept designs for Blade Runner 2049, Call of Duty Infinite Warfare and Fractured Space – as well as other undisclosed projects.

I now provide concept art and creative direction as an independent consultant – If you’d like to get in contact my email is:

“Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare wouldn’t be the experience it is without the immeasurable contributions of Mike Hill.”

Taylor Kurosaki, Narrative Director, Infinity Ward / Naughty Dog

“Working with Mike Hill is one of the highlights of my career. Mike brings so much thought, care and logic into his designs that you would almost think they were engineering schematics for some Lockheed Martin future project.”

Thomas Szakolczay, Lead Artist, Infinity Ward
