Brainchild Enertainment is looking for a logo design that will help in our attempt to pitch a live-action, TV show taking place in Blizzard Entertainment’s Warcraft universe. Since our company will be producing the pilot episode, this logo will be the official title of the series.
Here is what you need to know:
UPDATE: PLEASE HAVE A LOOK AT THE TWO UPLOADED IMAGES: Notes.jpg and Notes2.jpg TO HELP UNDERSTAND AND VISUALIZE THE LOOK WE ARE AFTER.
- The main title will be called: Warcraft. The subtitle will be called: Of the Lich King (this will be the storyline for this show). Attached is an idea for the arrangement of both (open for changes).
-We need to maintain ‘essence’ of the original Warcraft font typography (with its weight, width and all). This is very important; it should resemble the original Warcraft title and have some familiarity to it. Images are attached to show you what the original title looks like. Having mentioned that, we want to redesign it in such away that it will fit our own aesthetic desires. We will NOT just copy the original typography design.
- The main title will have a ‘brassy finish’ to it, reflecting a 'timeless feel' to the Warcraft universe. To understand what that means, two images are attached one with wolf head, and another with the words 'GOT' to hopefully give you some inspirations. They also show the quality of the metal work. So the title will have a brass finish but also this 'decay' look reflecting the 'age of this universe'. We have somewhat of a clear idea of what the final design should look like.
-The subtitle, however, will have a different type of font typography and it will have ‘frosty’ or ‘cold steel feel’ to it, since it will reflect the storyline we are trying to tell (majority of it takes place in a frozen continent). Images are attached for inspiration, as well as the original title from the video-game expansion. This subtitle, we admit, we are struggling to settle on for the 'look and feel'.
- Just to help you imagine how the title would fit with the final product, we attached an early concept of a 'featured image' of the show. Think of this as the 'poster' for the show (the image in question is the one with the Dark Portal, an etched black bottom, and the Warcraft title). So the Warcraft main title will be featured in all 'seasons' of the show, but the subtitle would change depending on the storyline.
