This project explored the difference between what could be iconic or symbolic by using characters from the Batman comics. The content was chosen based on the impact Batman has had on pop–culture as well as the rich character histories. The posters are screen printed on sheet metal to follow a theme of Gotham City. The character illustrations are paired with symbol relevant to each character.
The characters are illustrated in such a way that only the bare essentials are used to make up the illustrations. The symbols are created based on a characters ideals, history, or motives. An example would be a puzzle piece to represent the Riddlers obsession with leaving clues for the police to follow.
This is a current work-in-progress that focuses on packaging for a home beer line based on the Triple Crown race horse Secretariat. The name 31 Lengths comes from the distance that Secretariat won the 1973 Belmont Stakes. The railing is a key elements as the supports are used to measure lengths.
The three beers are a Churchill Lager called 1:59, a 1:53 Pimlico Pale Ale, and a 2:24 Belmont Stout. The names relate to the world record times Secretariat ran at each race on his way to the 1973 Triple Crown. Each package features the grandstand of the famous race tracks as well as a track color that relates to the type of beer.
Landor was approached by S2 Games in need of a logo for their new online role-playing video game called, Strife. The game is about a land at war over pieces of a magical obelisk. Multiple realms were created and all the pieces but one were recovered. Recent events in the game have made the location of the remaining piece known, and finding it can help bring peace, or plunge the world even deeper into war.
The logo takes direct influence from the lore of the game by showing a crumbling obelisk as the focal point. The base logo is a stone grey, but can take on colors of its surrounding environment, character art, or video effects. The only requirements are that the obelisk remain dimensional and the focal point, with the type flat vector.
*All character and environment artwork provided by S2 Games as well as animation for the video minus final logo animation.
