Quickfingers are a new iPhone & iPad development company. They required a complete brand experience creating for their new venture, including character illustrated branding and homepage design. They specifically wanted something that could portray ‘quick fingers’ but in a gaming reference and not in a too literal way, plus they love all things retro! I love projects like this!
I decided to experiment with the idea of a robot, something that could quite easily behold quick fingers. The character came together pretty quickly and while trying to find a great background to present him on, I in turn came across the look for the site! As this look was based on an old school vector grid tunnel, I decided to whip out the Nintendo Virtual Boy from my collection for some further inspiration...any reason to get an old console out and I’m on it! I thoroughly loved this little job!
When the Hoechsmann brothers got in touch about their re-branding and site redesign, I got somewhat excited! As let face it, we’ve all heard and enjoyed their AppStore hit Zombie Smash!
This character was created as a bit of an experiment. I had taken a great amount of inspiration from the great Genndy Tartakovsky and wanted to create a new character in his style.
