Videogame graphic design for
Intruder Alert!

When independent video game company RedMatter started work on their first stand-alone title ‘Intruder Alert!’, a game inspired by both classic and campy spy films, I was brought on board to help brand the new product as well as create a variety of videogame graphic design and marketing material to help raise awareness and promote the product during it’s development.

My first task was to create a logo for the game, aiming to capture both the 1960’s Bond aesthetic and the playful, humorous tone of the game. After plenty of research this bold, vibrant design was created, and went on to inform much of the design of the accompanying material for the project.

Concept Art Layouts

While the 3D artists were feverishly churning out fantastic assets to go into the game there was a need to communicate these to the fans to keep interest in the project high during potentially long production periods. We decided quite quickly that to use blueprint-style presentations of the various vehicles and locations perfectly fitted the ‘evil genius’ theme present in the designs.

IndieDB Profile Update

To coincide with the launch of the new brand and help raise interest in the project I was asked to completely rebrand the project’s IndieDB page. The original page was sparse and rarely strayed from the traditional appearance of many other projects’ pages so we knew a rebrand that incorporated every asset on the page would have the most appeal and elevate the project above it’s competition.
