As we finally decided on a typography design and an eco warriors logo was created, it was time to bring this design into our top trump card designs, here is the finished design.
As part of a group of 5, creating a deck of 20 cards means we can evenly distribute the work load by creating 4 cards each. I was in charge of Octavia human and Octavia Octopus (as Octavia is designed loosely on me). There are also 5 minions so it was fair to do a minion each. I got the minion of Agility and lastly, i created Yukky.
Here are the 4 cards.
Once we have decided on a typography design these cards will be changed to include our design.
Now that the group has discussed, we have decided to do a mock up design of all the cards in full colour which we will later finalize with the typography included. We are doing 4 cards each, i’m doing Octavia Human, Octavia Octopus, Yukky and Minion 5 which i have renamed Mingility as he is the minion of Agility.
Here are some very rough sketches i did in my sketchbook.
For our Typography project we are based in our Jellyfish world so first off i had wanted to create and research type based around sea life and creatures.
I found a few on the internet and took inspiration from them such as this one.
i quite liked this idea but decided not to opt for it or develop it further as our project wasn’t based on sealife, it was a world within in a jellyfish.
I also liked the idea of using letters to create an image like the letters w-h-a-l-e has to create the shape of a whale. However, doing this to create a jellyfish with its many wobbling limbs would be incredibly difficult and so i decided to move on from this idea as well.
I decided to create this design based on a basic wavy type and adding this tentacle idea to it. However to do this in a full comic book or for a full deck of cards would be difficult and hard to read.
I decided to focus more closely on basic comic book style types/fonts and will then discuss with the group and take on board all of their designs.
This first design is a basic thick comic style
this design is a much thinner style but still keeping within the comic styling.
Once designing the top trump eco warrior cards begins we will have a much better understanding of typography and how we wish to proceed.
