Leamington Spa, UK, March 7th, 2023 – Super Spline Studios, a leading animation co-development partner for the games industry, announced today that it will be moving to a permanent four day workweek with no reduction in pay or increase in hours for its staff. The move is a significant step forward for the company and is in line with its goal to be a “people first” studio.

“Our goal has always been to be a place where you can have a full career. We offer fully remote positions (or an office if people want that), we’ve never crunched or done overtime, we develop and promote internally and we do annual profit share, four day weeks is the logical next step.” said Aron Durkin, Co-Founder. “The games industry can be better, and we’re enacting the change we want to see.”

Super Spline Studios has a proven track record of delivering high quality creative and technical animation services, including full ownership / leadership of entire projects,  to leading game developers and publishers, recently including Sega, Jagex, Mediatonic / Epic, Frontier and Electric Square. 

“Combining the four day work week with our devotion to training our staff, via personal development time and training subsidies, results in a highly skilled and motivated team that not only produces top quality work but also enjoys a better work-life balance.” said Director Eoin Loughrey.

Multiple independent studies have already shown that a four day work week’s effect on productivity is negligible, even when measured against a five day week. This will allow Super Spline Studios to deliver more value to both clients and staff.

“We’re still one of the only studios operating in this space with a strict, public, zero-tolerance policy on overtime or crunch.” said James Childs, Co-Founder. “We won’t be fearful of the future, we will welcome it rather than play catch-up later. This change will further our commitment to being one of the best studios there is for an animator.”

Super Spline Studios is currently hiring experienced animators as they continue to grow and expand their services. Interested individuals can visit their website for more information on available positions.
