Today after a week of careful consolidations we reached a difficult decision regarding the game’s artwork…We were presented with two equally beautiful and equally impressive proposals for our game’s artwork by Spiros and Chiara from untilsunday.
We were very happy that both proposals captured the spirit of our game and we honestly had an extremely difficult time selecting which one we will go forward with.
Spiros on the one hand, coming from a classical art background came up with some amazing hand drawn artwork which had a lot of thought behind it, (I was really amazed on his explanation on how he selected the colors on each category and the fact that you could find meaning behind his every stroke). Chiara being a graphic designer came up with something equally impressive and we particularly liked her use of geometry in convening meaning…
We finally decided to go with Chiara’s proposal as we feel it is more accessible to a wider audience. We also decided that we will keep Spiros artwork for an alternative version of the game, (maybe a Kickstarter stretch goal) as it is really a shame for such beautiful work to stay locked up in a drawer. Worst comes to worst I’ll get Spiros to frame his artwork and hang it in the office. I promise that in due time I will post both artworks for you..
