Outfitted with pool tables, a mini bowling alley, an arcade, and more, ASI’s Games Room Etc. (GRE) prides itself in creating an environment “where students are able to relax and unwind from their daily class schedule.”
The GRE reached out to the Marketing, Design and Public Relations office in hopes of creating artwork to support their gaming-lounge atmosphere. Their brief: create four 48” x 150” vinyl banners depicting popular video game characters.
After finding reference pictures of the video games characters online, a series of concept sketches were produced. Subsequent office critiques narrowed down character placement/movement and strengthened the overall compositions.
Once the final designs were selected, they were transferred over to marker paper and inked. Heavy experimentation was done with different color palettes in Photoshop. Meanwhile, regular check-ins were conducted with the client to ensure aesthetic goals were being met.
