Atomhawk Design was founded in 2009 by four highly talented and experienced industry veterans from the legendary Midway Games Inc. Led by Art Director, Cumron Ashtiani, the company strives to provide the finest digital artwork and design services in the digital media sector.

Atomhawk's services include producing the highest quality concept and design work, storyboards, video production, promotional artwork and GUI/Web design.

Cumron Ashtiani, Director at Atomhawk explains the company’s vision:

“The technology behind today’s games consoles is now so advanced that there is relative parity between the different machines in terms of what they can deliver. In our view it is therefore design content and creativity that are the essential ingredients to make any product truly world class. We founded Atomhawk to deliver creative concepts and art assets which sit at the very highest level in terms of quality and design.”

Ashtiani explains the company’s reasons for joining TIGA:

“Joining TIGA is part of the evolution of the company. As the company grows and matures we felt it was important to become part of the thriving UK development community that TIGA represents.”
