This was a cool one to work with as the brand is soooo funky. The overarching element that had to be maintained in this design was the feel of the old school USA flare, pin striping, motorcycles and amazing insignia. And on top of this, the driver was sales, to showcase the clothes in the best light possible and encourage people to buy!
This was a cool one to work with as the brand is soooo funky. All that old school USA flare, pin striping, motorcycles and amazing insignia. I wanted to portray as much of this as possible in a really gritty, textured way to help pull out the key parts of the brand. Another fun part of this was the flash piece on the ‘Garage’ page, a nice opportunity to inject some movement into the page and introduce even more of the heritage. And to top off a fun project it also picked up a few awards and made it into a number of design features, nice!
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!
I’d been yearning to do the site for an FPS for ages now, so when the guys at Villain asked if I’d be interested in doing the Archetype site, I jumped at the chance!
