aim : professional look for twitter header (support 2 sponsors : razer gaming and monster energy) for fighting game player Xian (world evo champion and pro gamer)
context : Xian just got his second sponsor (monster energy) beside Razer. It's time to get his twitter polished !
Idea : reflecting his profession (fighting gamer) with good aesthetic (arcade gaming ?) to give him a great professional outlook, while not forgetting the geeky roots of his profession (fighting games / memes / anime)
influences or ideas for the header : anime (akira), games (king of fighters, mark of the wolves, street fighter) influences. Kung fury, tron, any great 80's movie and pixels art can be a great starting point.
- Can for example put one photo of the gamer (with the 2 sponsors on his shirt from the photos, razer and monster) with many sprite characters besides him like a family to show he's a gamer, and that he plays many fighting games.
- Another suggestion can also be to create a fake "movie poster" like sort of, and present the player as the best fighting game players. 80-90's aesthetic would fit perfectly (arcade retro theme style)
- A last idea can simply to make a classic header with one official photo from the gamer, and the designer can freely interpret himself the rest, as long as the visuals can translate the gamer's profession (professional sponsored fighting game pro player)
- What is discouraged : any header which simply compile his official shot with the provided pictures (they are optional and simply gives an idea of his universe). Makes the header looks like a 5 min photoshop work and gives an amateur feeling.
Thank you for your time.
