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!
This was a lovely little project that was destined never to be. So I thought I'd bring the characters out of storage box.
This was a great opportunity that arose late 2008, where I was approached by the publishers of this new creative inspiration book series, the Creative Unity, to appear in their first volume as none other than their featured designer!
