I have put together a promotional poster for the upcoming film Cleric. We wanted a soviet constructivist design aesthetic for the text, so instead of using a canned font I drew the CLERIC logotype custom for this project. Call it retro-futuristic avant garde soviet constructivism with a dose of unsettling lines to echo the film’s string-theory timeline warpage. Yeah, that doesn’t make any damn sense to me, either. The rest of the film will have even more references to the soviet-esque aesthetic subtly scattered throughout. I have plans for a few other posters in other styles, some leaning towards graphic novel, others towards illustrated propaganda poster. We’ll see how much time I can take to make them, being completely swamped in post-production hell right now. Visual effects take a loooong time to do right!
A good friend of mine runs the Rochester Americans fan site letsgoamerks.com, and he asked if I could help out with a new logo. Here’s the old one:
And here’s the sample sheet for the new one:
We wanted something modern and clean, that didn’t directly use the Americans’ logo (not trying to step on copyrights here!), but still got the point across. A little bit of shiny and a clean design emphasizes the web-centric nature of his venture. The extra whitespace forced at the top will help with the site layout as well. The logo works well in full color, black + 1 spot color, and just black. The gradients will make it challenging to render on low-res output media, but for the intended use that’s ok.
My friends over at Terminal Design Studios, artists who create awesome stuff made from old found materials, needed a website. I created a whimsical design with art deco inspirations, and put it together with Frog CMS. This was a quickie, but it looks cool. They need to add more content!
