Huh, thanks Zileas. I may actually apply...though it'll be when I swap majors to literary/journalism.

Can you imagine forums, can you? Overprotective Dad Shen, Diana get in the car references...Shogun Megazord.

We are reviewing internship applications over the next few weeks for Game Design, and you can find out about that here:
http://www.riotgames.com/careers/game-design-intern

We recently also posted a game design director position for League of Legends. This is a really attractive for the right candidate. No, I'm not firing myself, but I am hiring a design director:

I can answer some general questions about what we are looking for on this thread. As always, we like exceptional people who love games and have a passion to improve league of legends. Our hiring site can answer a lot of questions, but if there are any design specific ones, I may be able to answer them here.

What do your qualifications specifically need to be?

What do you guys look for in character designs? Strictly artsy elements or does a bit of game design + art design help?

You have been lax in those duties recently I feel. Gotta step it up sir.

It's all on the site. And game design is not about art design, if you are a capable artist, look at the concept artist position.
