I’ve always been facinated with murder mysteries, even as a child, and I’ve always loved stories along the vein of “And Then There Were None” by Agatha Christie. I’ve also been drawn to stories based in a “small town with a dark past” sort of vibe to them. I’ve based Drowned Harbor, ME in this same world.
I neglected to realize the amount of work involved in a project such as this. Each logo in itself took hours upon hours to perfect, and even then some were never completed 100%. The badges alone took weeks to get where I wanted them. I did try to incorporate inspiration from various eras in design, and illustrate how some of the stores etc. have been in the town for different periods of time, and how that would reflect on their branding and image.
There will be more added to this on a regular basis including a full map and possible supporting animations and backstory.
The collection is available as a free desktop wallpack (2560×1600, also usable for mobile) and you can grab the wallpack via a Facebook post or Tweet here:
“We asked over 50 designers, artists, illustrators and photographers to choose a book which has influenced them and shaped who they are today. They have chosen books to bring them back to the front of our minds.”
I Re-imagined – Dr Slump Vol 01 – ‘The Birth of Arale’s book cover, for Kult Studio / Gallery’s ‘Book’ themed magazine and exhibition. I wanted to pay homage to one of the greatest mangakas, Akira Toriyama whose work I grew up with. The imagination, story-telling and worlds created by Toriyama, ignited my love for illustration and inspired me to create my own worlds and characters.
