I’ve been afforded many great opportunities over the years and this was certainly one of them. Torn Banner Studios, the makers of the worldwide smash hit Chivalry Medieval Warfare, invited me to re-design their studios brand identity. This was a very, very exciting project indeed. Not only did the brand need designing but also the brand introduction sequence to open before their games.
The name of the studio itself made the idea generation fairly straight forward, so it was straight into concepts to find the right direction. We soon settled on the right look and then set to work on animating the falling the banner. The intention was to make the banner feel as though it was being dropped from a castle window and opening against a castle wall. It took quite a few attempts to get the material and physics working ‘just’ right, but we got there and the extra effort was well worth it!
