Gaming Dead

The brief:

The brief for this site was rather fun! 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. With all that said though, it still had to retain an element of fun and playfulness, what a great combo!

The solution:

We obviously started out with the brand first off and settled on the idea of a scalped, brain exposed zombie office worker! What an ugly fella this guy turned out to be! With the character branding sorted, we moved onto creating his home and playground, the website! This was so much fun to work on as it’s been ages since I created a zombie character. So if you like the darker side of the gaming world take a wander over and have a read. Great little project!

Haypi Kingdom

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!

Yey, a little more character development. I have some great new work starting soon, so I wanted to take some time to play around with some style development. Don't ask where the idea came from, I was just sat down watching some TV with my sketch pad playing with some lines...and boom, he appeared.
