Trenches

The brief:

This was one of the most fun projects I've ever had the pleasure of being a part of. Trenches was a gargantuan and totally awesome project! I was tasked with creating everything for this iPhone game from the ground up, game art, branding, interface design, HUD design, you name it, the whole shebang. Plain and simply, the guys at Thunder Game Works asked me to pull out all the stops and create the greatest work I could do, to allow them to have a killer looking game that matched the killer gameplay that they already had in place. This was going to be fun!

The solution:

Initially the guys at Thunder Game Works were gunning for something more serious, something a little more realistic, but I was convinced that giving this game something characterful, original, fun and memorable would work much better, so with that said, I went away and created some concept art to sell my vision. They were sold! Wahooo! I then started to flesh out the comical characters, animations, the different levels, the branding, the HUD, you name it, the whole lot. This was nothing short of brilliant, and is to date, one of my most favoured projects! Thanks Thunder Game Works for giving me the opportunity to work with you, this was awesome!

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!

Jungle Jumpers

This project was part of a 6 month contract where I acted as a concept artist for a number of different game's that were being prototyped internally. This one required a huge range of playful animal characters!
