In the month preceding the very first IGN Convention, the T-Break team got in touch with us to come up with a new brand design for the upcoming Convention. The look had to appeal to the gaming crowd, the geeks, the techies, comic fans, trekkies, anime-heads and the nerds. That’s more variety than the residents of Middle Earth. And of course it had to follow the dramatic design trends we expect from IGN.
We also created a new character called Ignite, the face for the convention.
Here’s what IGN Convention is all about (Source: The net):
Cosplay fans, film buffs, avid gamers, technology geeks and comic book collectors turned out in droves at the first IGN Convention. Stars and fans descended on IGN Convention, one of the most exciting video game, movie and comic festivals at Meydan in Dubai.
The two day event was attended by thousands of fans desperate to check out the latest from the world of video games, movies and art at the Meydan IMAX on Friday and Saturday (5 and 6 July, 2013). Fan favourite sci-fi and superhero movies were also screened at The Meydan IMAX that has the biggest cinema screen in all of Asia, while a plethora of local UAE directors and artists took part in Q&A sessions.
The IGN convention also included workshops on creating manga and animations, developing video games and movie making while The Artist Alley boasted local artists and developers.
Our own Ashraf Ghori was also a featured guest at the convention along with IGN’s Naomi Kyle & WWF Superstar Kevin “Big Daddy Cool Diesel” Nash & Nancy Silberkleit co-CEO of Archie Comics.
