THE STORY OF MOBILE GAMING


We’ve worked on a number of projects for Adobe, ranging from full-blown animation and motion graphics to visual design and illustration. 

Today we’re going to look at a deceptively simple project for Adobe: an illustrated infographic that describes new developments in the mobile gaming space. As it turns out, the devil is in the details.

The creative brief described a tall, scrolling graphic that could be legible in a typical web browser window and also enlarged 40-50%. The brief also called for a playful, non-corporate look with custom illustration and visual references to video gaming culture. Adobe’s goal was to get this piece reblogged in the gaming community, and that wasn’t going to happen unless the content seemed exciting to the audience.

We knew that we wanted to explore retro video game textures, but we didn't know exactly how far we would go.  Would it be worthwhile to use more contemporary color and font families?

Wonderwall is a daily habit for fans of celebrity news, gossip, and photos.

BermanBraun enlisted Belmondo to help with the reskinning of the Wonderwall app for iOS.

It was refreshing to design something that was deliberately glossy, superficial, and lighthearted.
