Guerrilla Games
Studio Art Director
Art Direction Bootcamp: A No Nonsense Approach to Designing Robot Dinosaurs
Van Beek will talk about the development of the critically acclaimed post-apocalyptic action adventure Horizon Zero Dawn – which went from a crazy sounding idea to becoming one of the most successful new game franchises in recent years. He will offer a glimpse into how the world, the characters, and the iconic robot dinosaurs evolved from sketches, through to prototypes to finally emerging as a fully-fledged video game.

As Studio Art Director, Jan-Bart van Beek oversees the art and animation quality of all Guerrilla projects at both studios. A photography student at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in The Hague, Jan-Bart turned to computer graphics software to enhance his work. After graduation he applied his knowledge as a CG artist in the field of advertising. His ambition to create something more enduring led him to join Guerrilla, where he quickly became the Lead Artist on Killzone and the Art Director on Killzone 2 and beyond.
