I had the privilege of working with Todd Crapper of Broken Ruler Games on designing the website for their fantastic RPG, High Plains Samurai. The game itself is a blast to play, and I tried to capture the action-packed feel of the game in the design of the site through colors, fonts, and animations.
I really enjoyed working on this adventure module for the Universal Storytelling System from Palegain Press. The setting, though vaguely East Asian, is unique and my design skills were stretched trying to communicate the flavor of the setting without lazily reverting to stereotypes or appropriating (and erasing) specific real-world cultures.
This logo was chosen by the people from TabletopLoot.com from a final slate of three options to represent their company.
The hexagon outline shape allows the isometric text to give the indication of a three dimensional cube, thus referencing six-sided dice. It also nods to the overall shape of a 20-sided die.
The font I used, Righteous, gives a sort of other-worldly feel, allowing people to associate the brand with the science fiction and fantasy games that TTL supports with their products. Simultaneously, it’s not essentially any particular genre, which gives the company flexibility going forward with product direction.
Hopefully soon I’ll be able to write up a post describing the whole design process of this logo, as I’m pleased with the way it turned out.
I realized I didn’t have a good example of an original layout or document design for roleplaying games. This is a design template I’m working on for an upcoming rpg adventure module project to be launched on kickstarter later this year. The module, as you might guess, is sea-themed.
It’ll still get tweaked some before the final version. I’ll be sure to update here when the project goes live.
