Black Tusk Studios
The brief on this project was extremely limited, as the site had to portray a message that was HEAVILY protected by an NDA and even I wasn't allowed full access to the information that all this was based on. So needless to say, this was as exciting as it was extremely challenging...but if you know me, you know I love a damn good challenge!
As I'd only been given light hints as to the what this site had to portray, it was a case of going away and working almost blindly, and sending the design back for feedback to see if I was hitting the target. Luckily, I was very close first time, so with a handful of amends we actually landed on the final design quite quickly. I'm so intrigued by the game that their working on (tipped to be Microsoft's next big franchise since Halo) as from the tip bits of info I got, it was sounding very, very exciting indeed!
Rather than the usual video game news site, Gaming Dead is geared toward the darker side of the games industry, the horror genre! The site needed a new, grim character based brand and a creepy menacing site design too.
After creating that scruffy looking combat droid I was inspired. New style, new burst of enthusiasm, so hold on tight, there's gonna be looooooads more of this style coming soon.
