Metal Drift

The brief:

The brief was fairly simple for this one, play the game (darn, that part was hard, I love this job) get a good feel of things and try to portray as much of the feel as possible. The overarching angle has to be futuristic sports action. Awesome!

The solution:

I’d been dying to get my gubby mitts on this site from the day I designed the company site back in 2008, so I was overjoyed when Weston over at Black Jacket got back in touch and asked if I’d be interested in creating the microsite for Metal Drift! They threw me over a working demo of the game and it is simply AMAZING! It’s like Speedball 2 meets Unreal Tournament meets Wipeout, it’s just brilliant! The quality of the gameplay, visuals and finishing effects can only be described as AAA! Anyway, yeah, getting carried away there, the site was ace to work on and after playing the game so much I just had to inject as much of that excitement into the design as possible. So overall this was intended to feel like a high paced, neon filled futuristic sports battle zone. Great fun! Oh yeah, and its already scooped a few design awards too, yey :)

Happy viking...angry viking...grrrrr. This was one of the many personal illustrations that I created back when I was managing at Lightmaker and was in dire need of getting back to my sketchpad. He hee, it was probably a reflection of how I felt at the time ;)
