This post title was brought to you by The Nightmare Before Christmas.
One of the last months highlights has been applying to a company that sells fancy dress costumes online. They’re genuinely nice people, so here’s a link to them. Sadly, that application goes no further; I gave 125%, and someone else gave 150%. I can now show you some of my application project.
We were given one week to create a bunch of specified assets. Themes were picked from a hat – mine was Halloween. Score!
A ‘shop window’ splash image, to highlight some male and female costumes:
Codename “Dead Wedding”, it’s loaded with gravestones, bats, pumpkins and other seasonal paraphernalia. The costumes are for sale on their site. Insider tip – the black flowers in the lower-left corner are also available for purchase.
Also, a re-design of the site logo:
Notice how the whole thing is enclosed in a box, to represent their delivery service. The shiny look imbues glamour and fun, as the current logo does, while the choice of accessories shown (pirate hook, fake moustache) show that the site is not just for girls.
Progress through the concepts below:
As you may have noticed, Halloween is not the season we’re currently in. Let’s end on a festive note. I may get coal in my stocking this year, but that’s OK – there’s a wood burner in the living room, it’ll help get the fire started. HO HO HO.
