Project: Gamers TalkProject specifics:
- Forum Design
Client location: India
Fantastic project! The goal here was create a forum & brand that had some serious visual punch and broke away from the typical stale gaming forum environment! The main goal was to create a design that would immediately appeal to its hardcore gaming members. This could not be dry, clean and typical, it had to be gritty, action packed and intense!
As the site had to appeal to the more hardcore gamer, the site had to plunge the user into a very gamer oriented atmosphere. It had to make them feel at home, evoking feelings and experiences that they are used to within their current games. This was a blast to work on and it was great to have so much creative freedom on something that is traditionally quite stylistically restrictive.
These two cheeky monsters were originally a couple of un-used concepts from an old project that fell into the pile of old sketches.
Back in 2007 I was approached by Patrick McNeil from none other than the very popular design site, Design Meltdown, to appear in his book ‘The Web Designers Idea Book’ in the ‘black’ themed section, that was due to go on sale in late 2008.
