School for games and the office

The office of any company  needs some design every now and then. And while I was at School for Games this year I also renewed some school and examination regulations, redesigned the business corespondents and I created new things that might be needed in the near future.

The School for Games contract is previously design by me and now redesigned by me as well. There are improvements for better placing the letters and then reading your data much better. Also the new European payment system is included. There are also some improvements for the information and regulations.

School for Games in blue

It’s always a pleasure for me to work for School for Games, because many very special and good designs happen then. This time I worked on the redesign for the brochure and a workshop flyer that needed to be finished for the great Gamescom in Cologne in 2013.  We decided to change the colors and to fit many elements to one design so that people see, this belongs together, this is School for Games. Blue is a nice, fresh color that also puts out the famous orange of School for Games. And as you can see, the orange does its job better to catch the focus of the eye for special information.

In it you find all the necessary information about School for Games and the current game market. Some illustrations are by Flowstudios, Nadia Enis, interns and students of School for Games.

Frogpac – Berlin Mini Jam July 2013

A game made at the Berlin Mini Game Jam July 2013.  This is a collaboration with Christiaan Janssen, Juliana Hüttelmeyer and Ulysses Hsiung-Luo.

We combined the themes “pixel art”, “light and darkness” and “retro style”.  We made a Pacman tribute with a new game play mechanic:  Frogpac, the protagonist, carries around a box of matches.  As the fire consumes, the visibility is reduced up to a small radius.  Pressing space you can light a new match and see better for some seconds.

The game has 7 levels.  We must admit that it’s a bit hard to get to the end.

Berlin Mini Game Jam April 2013

Hello everyone,

there is this awesome game jam every now and then and this time I thought I have time, now I have to participate.
People with their talents come together and create small games which they present afterwards.

Our team decided to use Construct 2 because we were a small team and we chose a difficult topic.
Dark science and making the character interesting instead of the game.

So here are some screen shots:

Pig genetics - A dangerous world. The pig should not try to become food.

Pig genetics - Oh, maybe you can spit some corns

Pig genetics – Oh, maybe you can spit some corns, but you can´t.

Pig genetics - No matter what, you always can see what´s behind you.

Pig genetics – No matter what, you always can see what´s behind you.

Pig genetics - Huuuh, it flies.

Pig genetics – Huuuh, it flies.

And here you can try the game by yourself.
But remember: We only had a couple of hours to make this game and we were a small team.
And someday this game might be not available to play, because I might delete it to have more space on my Dropbox. :P

There is a lot of bad stuff going on the world. A lot of poverty. Even in Germany where I live. But some people like to help them and the radio channel of Gitta Peyn is one opportunity to get some help, especially about the social system in Germany. I´m happy to help as well with my skills, making a design and giving the help some kind of a face so that people remember that they can get help here. Gitta Peyn really likes the design. The design, which is vintage because the radio is vintage, reminds her of music from the 60s.
