Steve Dietz joins start-up following spell at Lightning Fish

New hire for Pitbull Studio

Start-up studio Pitbull, the group formed following the collapse of Midway Newcastle, has hired the experienced Steve Dietz as its new art director.

Dietz, who also worked at Midway Newcastle before the studio closed down, has worked in the industry for over 16 years – nine of which in a managerial role.

He joins Pitbull following a brief stint at Lightning Fish Games. Some of his previous projects include Wheelman, LA Rush, Test Drive and Pete Sampras Tennis.

“I’m excited to be with such a close-knit team, and looking forward to keeping very much hands on, while growing the art team further,” said Dietz.
