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 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.
Fantastic project! The goal here was create a forum & brand that had some serious visual punch and broke away from the typical stale gaming forum environment!
