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.
Layout & Print
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.
This brochure is half letter size (5.5″ x 8.5″) and is designed to give guests an overview of Severna Park United Methodist Church and its offerings. After speaking with the church leadership, I also took the opportunity to infuse a bit of energy into the brand’s colors and typeface usage. The geometric patterns create a visual sense of activity and movement, and the oranges and teals reference the ocean flavor that permeates the community in which the church resides.
The theme for Advent was “Is Love Alive?” Then, for the Christmas celebration, we changed over to “Love Is Alive!”
The tone of the graphics reflect a more conversational approach to what can sometimes be a holiday season filled to the brim with rituals, some of which may have lost some of their meaning through repetition. The wood grain background reminds us of the humble setting into which God entered the world. I also produced a tri-fold brochure and poster detailing their Advent offerings.
This is a page from the design and layout of a document for a friend of mine. The Dûrnossë is a creature and associated rules created for use in the 5th edition of Dungeons & Dragons. The document was designed to replicate the look and feel of the Monster Manual published by Wizards of the Coast, LLC. To see a couple pages from the inspiring book, check out this review on Gizmodo.
