Creative Mondays 123 – Titanfall Poster

Titanfall Poster Design

“What is Creative Mondays?

Monday’s are always a drag. The start of a new week, you have to go back to that routine of going to bed early/get up early. If (like me) you have to commute then you prepare for that long journey into work and that long journey back for the first time after a nice two day break.

So to kick off those lousy Mondays, I’m going to get my creative mind flowing in a positive way. Creative Mondays. A chance for me to show off something unfinished or finished that I’ve been working on throughout the previous week.”

This past week I got the final piece of the puzzle for my new PC build. My shiny new graphics card. I have been playing PC games as long as I can remember (even before the likes of Doom and Quake) but recently haven’t had the specs to keep up with the latest and greatest.

Finally I’ve had the chance to catch up and the first to be tested was Respawn Entertainment’s Titanfall. This is a furiously fast game, there’s so much going on and I’m still working out the game mechanics but I’m really enjoying the mix of first-person shooter and mech battles.

While the inspiration’s still hot I thought I’d design this poster and then probably jump in for another couple of hours of gameplay!

Here in the UK, we don’t always get what you’d call a conventional summer. However, this past week we’ve seen temperatures soar and the need to get outside and soak up those rays of sunshine went high on the agenda. As you can tell by this week’s creation there was one thing on my mind.

I think it was around this time last year that I created my Welcome To London poster, the Adobe CS6 suite had not long launched and I was experimenting with a few new techniques. One of them was the ‘oil painting’ option which I love and have always wanted to use again in a piece of work.

Following a similar theme from that design I created one from the city I live in. Once the sun comes out, she shines pretty brightly!
