Pretty happy with this site and so is dan, Wonderful guy!!! Was awesome working with him and while we still have some minor tweaks here and there business is up and running! This is an E-Commerce site and i designed and created every single graphic! including Dan’s robot mascot! How? hand drawn sketches that I then converted to vector line art with Adobe’s Illustrator CS4… site is .asp based and comes with an awesome easy to use control panel! Now go buy some games!!!! Dan deserves it!!!! 🙂
A second design of mine was approved for voting =) This has been really fun and a great way of experimenting with different concepts within limitations (the contest requires we use no more than 3 colors and use their bear template for the design). So my second bear was inspired by my favorite painting of all time: THE KISS, by Gustav Klimt. If you like him or Pangea and think them vote worthy please do vote and share these links with your friends, family and coworkers =)
I have been working on a logo for a new client of mine that sells retro/vintage games and we are both so happy with the final design! The client showed it to a group of online merchants to ask their opinions and the response was simply fantastic!
Here’s an example:
“Whoa – you sell video games? And here all this time I thought you sold shaving cream. Does that answer your question? Thumbs up.”
LOVE it!!!! If you’d like to see the whole design click the link below…. bonus points if you can come up with a name for the robot/mascot I created for him! 😉
Software used: Adobe Illustrator CS2
It was great working with Dan and he pretty much gave me carte blanche… Video games… any games in general in fact are FUN.. and so a FUN, colorful design that reminds us all of our own inner child was the way to go! Another comment we got in fact said just that:
“What a fun logo. Makes me feel like a kid just looking at it. You’re right, she’s very talented.”
I wanted to use the new trend of retro/vintage artwork made to order for the new web 2.0 glossy look. The logo is going to make a great center piece for the header that I am now designing for his web store. If you’d like to have a look at his shop it’s here:
We’re redoing the whole store so it’ll be a HUGE change by the time we’re finished! I can’t wait…. this is what I was born to do… DESIGN! =)
