Cascadia Games are the guys behind the INSANELY awesome iPhone game, Cavorite (I highly advise downloading it, its a personal fave of mine) so I was really happy when Chris, the owner got in touch regarding this project. They needed the new brand and site to truly encapsulate all that they stood for. The story and thinking behind the company brand is quite deep, so it was going to be a really fun challenge to visualise it!
There is a faux secession movement where Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia secede and
form a new nation called Cascadia. This is where the name of the company derives and thus the new brand and site had to capture the ideas of rebellion and power. This was such a great background to work against and quite surprisingly, we finalised the brand/character quite quickly and soon moved onto expanding this creation into the homepage design. I absolutely loved creating this brand and site, why not pop over and take a look!
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!
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.
