Challenge

Create a logo design for the game company Voracious Games. The company produces stylized video games with focus on creating engaging, beautiful stories with multi-faceted characters. The customers will be reached through Steam marketplace, active presence on Social Media channels (especially Twitter and Tumblr), by multimedia push and face-to-face at game conventions. The target customers are in the age span 16–30 year, close to gender neutral but leaning towards a female audience. The target group grew up playing Final Fantasy and watching Disney animated films and Japanese anime. The customers are midcore gamers and they want gameplay depth and enjoys strong narratives. They also tend to like well-crafted and polished game play experiences. Some of the competitors are: That Game Company, Super Giant Games, Capy Games, Double Fine, Klei Entertainment and Vlambeer. Words that should be associated with the brand are strong, artistic, quality, and polished. Customers shall trust that Voracious Games provides quality.

Solution

My goal with the overall visual design is to establish Voracious Games as a hungry game company that wants to craft the best games out there. Quality games that has a foundation in strong narratives and multi-faceted characters. As a viewer you strongly feel that quality is a big thing for Voracious Games. They value craft. The logo design consists of both hard corners and round, smooth curves – showing many different sides of itself, as a opposite to just hard or smooth. This also relates to your primary target group, who is close to gender-neutral (not just for men or women). The logo is pretty minimalistic but still far from sterile with lots of character, just like the characters in their games.

When you see the logo, you should get a sense of what Voracious Games stands for. The logo is a polished modern design that signals strength, craft and quality. The logo design is distinct and very easily recognized in just black or white. I have also created a monogram to use where the main logotype does not fit. Examples could be as an icon on web/social media platforms like Steam, Facebook, Tumblr, etc. The overall expression is very different from any of the competitors.

Great job Björn! We believe the logo is very classy and we dig the simple yet very expressive design. We also really liked the communication during the process – by explaining your design decisions it allowed us to make better informed feedback. And, the pricing was fair to us and the result is amazing!”
