Accidental Fish, what a killer name and project! As we all know, creating characters is what I love most, and when a blooming good brief lands on my desk, giving me some rather lovely creative freedom, I enjoy it all the more! I was given the name and a request to go crazy. Accidental Fish wanted my unadulterated creativity. To take their name and visualise it into something fun, playful and painfully wacky...so I did! While being a very literal interpretation of the name, I wanted the character to be as cute as he was goofy, so with his wonky eye’s, and a battered body he still holds a cute persona. Great fun! Accidental Fish make apps for the iPhone and iPad, so why not pop over for a quick look!
Giving something back to the Indie scene is pretty important to me, so after re-designing Tig Source and Indiecade last year, it was time to tackle Game Tunnel!
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!
