CT4011 – Creative Skills for Design – ASSESSMENT ONE – Brief Five – Moodboard


Here is my moodbard for my fifth assigned brief: Poster, Bluray Cover and Disk Label.

As I had to do three designs and I am a gamer myself. I decided to gather my own collection of game cases and disks and use them on this moodboard.

I took a look at all the games I had on my shelf, and selected five with the best structure, eye-catching photos and buzzwords.

Those were:

  • Horizon: Zero Dawn
  • Red Dead Redemption II
  • FIFA 19
  • Borderlands: The Handsome Collection
  • Marvel: Spider-Man

These five games allowed me to look into the different art styles and  how they place their artwork on the back and front covers of their cases.

I then proceeded to two of the five games above with the best disk art and use them as reference for my Disk Label. I chose: Red Dead Redemption II and Horizon: Zero Dawn.

I liked these two because they allow their art to take a huge amount of the disks surface and let the text become a secondary asset.

I then looked into film poster which I gathered off the internet. I wanted to chose posters that similar structure but had very different colour schemes. The three films I picked: Black Panther, Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Real Steel for me personally all contain the same genre (Action) but they present it in diverse ways.

I enjoyed making this moodboard and look forward to sketching out the three designs.
