Say hello to Thumb Arcade, a new and exciting mobile games developer! This project required some rather fun illustration, branding and site design! The brief was simple, create a bright, exciting and somewhat bonkers new brand and site design for this fresh new mobile games development company. Just the kind of brief I love. And when they said they wanted all of it to be cartoon illustrated, my eyes lit up!
With a name like Thumb Arcade, it didn’t take all that long to visualise the character for this...a thumb...stood at an arcade, what more could you ask for? Needless to say the character came together really well and its one that both the guys at Thumb Arcade and myself are really pleased with! When we moved onto the site, it simply became an extension of the character, creating a fully illustrated site that the character could reside in. Great fun. Why not pop over to the site and see what they’re up to.
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, I've been talking about this project for months now, and the first teaser trailer is finally here!
This was a great little illustration job! Cocos 2D is a kick ass framework for creating 2D iPhone games, one that Chris (the development half of our new independent games company, more info on that coming soon :) discovered in the early stages of creating our first iPhone game.
