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!
After completing the Haypi Kingdom site and brand design, I was lucky enough to be invited to re-design the game's HUD and menu system! Awesome!
Well, after sketching that dinosaur character on my new iPad using Autodesk's SketchPad Pro, I couldn't believe how much media attention it picked up!
