GEN – .NET Magazine – Issue 182 Build Off
This was great fun once again. It’s been a while since the last build off for NET mag, so I was overjoyed to be presented with the chance of doing another one. This time it was for an energy provider. As this is a rather stale subject, I wanted to inject a little politics and passion into the equation, so rather than take the usual approach I created a fictitious company called GEN (Or Green Energy in full) toward the earthy folk of the world and show how a design could house some real personality and appeal to people on a level higher than simply ‘being the cheapest’. I already had a few emails from people regarding the article (thanks everyone...and no it's not been to complain about my stupid photo ;) so it looks as though it's struck a really positive chord, which is ace, just what I wanted.
As Microsoft Games Studios were renaming and re-branding their Vancouver based development studio to Black Tusk Studios (to coincide with the development of a brand new Xbox exclusive IP), I was tasked with creating their all new online presence to join the action. Rather exciting!
GEEK OUT! This was, is and always will be one of the most amazing parts of my career...getting to work with my heroes over at Cave in Tokyo!!
