Midway Newcastle vets form Atomhawk Design

Wheelman team members offering digital art for games, film and online clients

Four former employees of Midway Newcastle have formed Atomhawk Design, a new digital art production company for games, film and online.

The team is led by director Cumron Ashtiani, a 12 year vet who's work includes The Thing, Batallion Wars and most recently Wheelman.

He's joined by Pete Thompson and Corlen Kruger as lead concept artists, and lead graphic designer Steven Pick, who between them have contributed to TD Overdrive, LA Rush, War Devil, Super Trucks, TT Superbikes and Music 3000.

Based in Gateshead, Newcastle, the team is "currently working with a number of top tier clients across all areas of digital media," although ongoing projects are under wraps.

"The company is built entirely around our key goal which is to provide a world class design and digital art production service, helping our customers to visualise their ideas and to present those ideas to the world with breathtaking style and quality," said Atomhawk.

Midway Newcastle wasn't included in the sale of Midway Games to Warner Bros. earlier this year, and was subsequently forced to close.
