The East Coast Game Conference (ECGC) is the largest gathering of video game professionals on the East Coast. The focus of the conference is to provide video game developers an engaging program and opportunities for networking and collaboration.
Each year ECGC hosts a t-shirt competition to showcase their convention. The challenge was to create an engaging image that would appeal to both the technical side of the target audience as well as the creative side.
I settled on a figure in a very dynamic pose exploring the exciting new world of VR technology. The pixelated disintegration utilized was indicative of dissolving into the VR world. It was most challenging to remain in the 4 color maximum while keeping all the detail I wanted to portray.
ECGC contacted me again to express their desire to update the design to reflect the pandemic year. The conference was not able to be held in 2020 due to the worldwide COVID-19 epidemic. Because of this, ECGC plans to release a limited edition t-shirt using the design that won in 2020 as a base.
