Have a break..have a kit-kat

So its mid term break or 'Reading Week'. A chance to catch up on whats done before and read over some of those notes. For me it's also going to be time to catch up on some games, havent had much time in the last week so looking forward to having a go at some new titles that are out.

The Force Unleashed 2 is first up and I am really looking forward to getting to play through that, will post more about it in the next few days.

Im then considering playing Vanquish which wasnt too bad in the demo but could do with some tweaks here and there.

Also in college some of us have been looking at 'Minecraft' which is still in its early design states but looks pretty cool. Graphically its not great but the work some people have done and posted on YouTube with their creations is amazing. Theres two below worth checking out!

So many games so little time...

Poster Design

So for this weeks Design Practice we had the task of creating a poster for an Alfred Hitchcock film and present it to the class. We were only allowed use black and white and then one other colour of our choice. Below is what I came up with and I was happy enough with the result.

Having went for the Digital Games stream of the masters I was looking to focus on the games element and get away from web and graphics which I have worked at up to this, but I have to say I am enjoying the class and learning about the various designers. I have come across some really interesting work designers through the presentations we had to do last week so will be taking a look at some of them in more detail.
