This is a presentation deck I designed for a client and good friend of mine a while ago. I couldn’t present it until now due to it still being in the conceptual stage. The branding I did didn’t stick as they have been working with other vendors and investors who have their own people. Even so this was a really fun project to work on. I have always had a soft spot for eSports and gaming in general as I am an avid gamer. Nothing brings me more joy than being able to bridge my hobbies and passion for design together.
I started with a concept of “mana” what does “mana” look like? A typical mana potion seemed over done, I didn’t want something to nebulous or “flowing” like water or anything overly…particulate? I then went for something more solid, crystalized. I wanted something that might look good on peripherals as well. I played with a few different concepts trying to find the right color scheme and vibe for the idea of “mana” but also wanted to ensure it had a luxury vibe as well.
Eventually we did land on a final concept and I will admit I loved how it came out. It kind of tied the rest of the design together in my opinion. It had the concept of mana, energy and luxuriousness that I was looking for. Only took a few days. Then I focused on visualizing the data and format the content to keep the luxury feel yet still feel energizing, soothing and clean.
