Manager: ExtraKen
Operating Years: 2007 - Present

Habbox Graphics is the team of Graphic Designers who produce most of the graphics you see around Habbox. This includes Habbox.com, Habbox Forum, HabboxLive and Habbox Wiki.

The Graphic Designers produce icons, banners and signature images for each of the sites. They are in control of all graphics made by Habbox and published on the site - they are responsible for making the forum look colourful, interesting and professional. They produce a diverse range of graphics in varying styles fit for all purposes. The department is currently run by ExtraKen.

The Graphics department has been around from the very start of Habbox. It has had a number of managers, but very rarely an Assistant Manager. Historically, the department is a rather small - around 5-10 staff members, although Drew expanded this greatly in 2014-2015 with the introduction of the Pixel Art department.

Every piece of art on each 5 sites has been made or edited by the graphics team, and critiqued by other members of Graphics Staff, the Senior, Manager or Assistant General Manager - as well as the manager who requested the graphic! In the lifetime of the graphics team, they've had a total of 3 members to go through the department to get the role (Assistant) General Manager or General Manager.

On 1st December 2014, a Pixel Art sub-department was brought back by Drew and lawrawrrr. Intersocial was appointed as Senior Pixel Artist to assist Drew with managing the new branch, but after his resignation, Zealoux was appointed as the new Senior Pixel Artist - following Drew's resignation and the promotion of Zealoux, there is currently no Senior Pixel artist. The Pixel Artists and Graphics Designers, however, have different job scopes and one must apply for both separately if interested. The main aim of a Pixel Artist is to make high-quality alterations on demand.

Graphics Events

More recently, the Graphics department has been becoming more involved with the community and has displayed this through a series of HabboxForum and client events. The list of major events hosted by the graphics department can be shown below:

Trivia

  • **Between 14th May and 20th December 2009, the role of graphics manager was fulfilled by the then general management team.
  • Up until .-.eXtra.-. became graphics manager, the department had been managed by sierk and the general management team for three years.
  • For a while, Habbox had a second graphical based department, the Pixel Art Department, which co-existed with the Graphics Department. It closed but was brought back as a sub-department in 2014 by Drew and lawrawrrr.
  • The Graphics get very little recognition for their work, they're the "Back-End" crew.
