Revised box art for Defender Of The Crown Intellivision

Recommended Posts

"William ... when you guys put this game off" .....it pisses you off? :-)

 

No no no ... it pisses me out ... er ... I meant ... when you put it out ...

 

And make sure that you do "put it out" ... don't try the "pull out" method, it doesn't work.

 

I'm going to stop typing now. Too much Starbucks this morning.

Seriously, it has been put off too long.

The fonts are too thick and legible, and you need a pastel gradient or two. Have you learned nothing from Jony Ive? :lol:"

 

Whew! I thought you were talking about the DOTC box for a second! ...Who is Jony Ive?

 

No, no... it was a lame joke directed at Jason's image. The DOTC box is cool.

 

The only thing I would mention is that the image on the cover looks like it's been covered with a blue filter, which obscures the artwork a bit. It also has the effect of taking focus away from the details, which diminishes its impact. Blue sky, blue horse, blue armour, blue feathers, blueish flesh tones--blue hightlights on everything! All on a blue-coloured box.

 

Just my opinion. The artwork is nice, though.

That is the original art scan......I chose the box colour based on elements in the picture.

 

The original pink box went well with our grey art, but the original clashed badly.

 

The box is more 'azure' than blue....there are some green elements in there.

 

Tones might be adjusted to see how that looks.

I think Jony Ive is graphic designer for Apple (ios). Learned that last weekend :-) Edited by JasonlikesINTV

My apologies, Jason. I didn't mean to insult your artistic sensibilities. :P

Jony Ive is "the designer" for everything Apple going back to the egg shaped iMac, his studio is one of the most secure spots on the Apple campus. Steve Jobs quote in his book was something like "Only Jony has as much free reign in this company as I do".
