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!

Black Jacket Studios

As I absolutely love the creative direction of Black Jacket Studios first game, Metal Drift, I was really excited to create a brand that would slot into this feel. Very much my cup of tea!

Web Designer Magazine Feature

Yey, another little appearance in Web Designer Magazine! I was invited to do a quick article about how I use Photoshop for the web and how valuable it is to me as a designer. As Photoshop is my main tool it seemed like the perfect thing to be writing about!
