Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment asked us to create the logo and marketing art for the newly released, next-gen Lord of the Rings game, Middle-earth, Shadow of Mordor, developed by Monolith Productions. The open world, action/RPG game is set between the events of the Hobbit and LOTR stories, and focuses on the story of Talion as he exacts his revenge for his family’s, and his own, death. The challenge was that the art needed to feel like it was of the Middle-earth world, yet clearly differentiate from past LOTR game titles and movies. It had to be darker, emotionally charged and capture the right mood, yet not be over-the-top, something that was not in-line with Talion’s stoic character. The aggressive stance and tension in his body convey his power as he surveys the battlefield, savoring the sweet moment of vengeance and issuing a challenge to his next victim.
Congrats to our long-time partner, Activision, for their futuristic first-person shooter game, Destiny, selling more than $325 million worldwide in its first five days.

That’s on par with the engagement levels of our most popular Call of Duty games, which obviously is an industry leader”.
