Client: Gaming Dead
Project: Gaming Dead WebsiteProject specifics:
- Character Branding
- Homepage Design
Client location: USA
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!
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!
One of my favourite parts of the Sonica package, the castle...oooooooh spooky! This formed a large part of the story and was used as the end of level challenge!
Creating the UI concepts for Haypi Dragons was too much fun, primarily due to doing this straight after the in game art concepts :)
