Project: IndieCade - RedesignProject specifics:
- Homepage Design
- Subpage Elements
Client location: USA
I was contacted by Kellee Santiago from Thatgamecompany to ask if I'd be willing to help out on a probono design project for the guys over at IndieCade, as they were in need of a new site design to promote their Independent Games Festival. How could I refuse? It was and is after-all, the Indie scene that has set me on my way, so I jumped in with both feet!
As time was of the essence with this project, I offered to redesign the homepage and to create a set of generic page elements that could be chopped up and reused for the sub-pages, so while the project was only a couple of days in duration, it was great fun! I have to say that it felt great to giving something back to the Indie scene, as I've worked almost solely with this industry for two years now, and the spirit and essence of these people is inspiring!
This is the ‘green with envy’ Stats Envy monster for a new gaming stats site due out later this year. It was a really fun little brief to create an angry, envious little green monster, just the kind of project I like :) I really do love illustration!
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.
