Eco Warrior Merchandise.

Over the past weeks i have been so engrossed in designing cards, magazines and websites that the idea of merchandise didn’t enter my mind, but lucky, Hannah (member of the group) did, and she came up with some great ideas.

these ideas could sell to adults and kids alike. There could even be much more such as sweets, watches, necklaces, soft toys etc. The possibilities really are endless.

Eco Warrior Web Page Design.

I had previously designed a home page for the eco warriors top trump cards, as had some of the rest of the group. I decided to make two more pages for the website, i wanted to be able to visually explain how a child would submit their work and did so by creating the page below.

I wanted to make it very simple and using simple worlds so it was child friendly. Using my boyfriends little sisters information i made the page look as if she was submitting her work. She has browsed her computer and chosen her drawing. She has entered her name, age and some information about her character. Once she is happy she can submit her work and we can then transform it into one of the card designs seen at the bottom of the page. She could also safely give us her address or email and we could send her a real hard copy of her top trump card.

At the bottom of the page there is a click through link to view the gallery of other kids word, and here it is below.

Again, i tried to make this page very easy to understand and very user friendly. Clicking teh black arrows with let the images move either left or right like a gallery reel. If the child wants to take a closer look at a card they can click the image at it will become larger, as seen below.

Eco Warriors magazine cover and Website Homepage Design.

I decided to design a website home page for children and a magazine cover based on the eco warriors. With use of typography we made a logo which i included in both designs. I found this quite difficult to try and look professional but did my best.

Typography

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.

This style is inspired more by a science fiction design.20131215_203850

The following designs i wanted to look more hand drawn or ‘sketched’ which i quite like the design of. 20131215_203909 20131215_203921 20131215_2039140

As i had done a very thin design i wanted to make quite a fat rounded design and came up with this, i feel it also looks quite science fiction. 20131215_2039222

 

Once designing the top trump eco warrior cards begins we will have a much better understanding of typography and how we wish to proceed.
