2. What Will It Consist Of? The wallpaper will consist of many
images having something to do with Achilles. Characters, text and
recognisable images such as the helmet from the app logo will be
included. Colours will vary but they will be related to the colour
scheme in the actual game Achilles some how. The challenge in this
project is to understand what goes well together - that being
images, colours, composition.
3. Where I Stand With Wallpapers We covered making wallpapers
slightly in our rst year. It had no relevance to any other project
so we could stick whatever we wanted on there. The only problem was
that I couldnt remember how to do it as it had been over a year.
(First years wallpaper below) I looked for help on the internet, a
website called vector cove had a tutorial. This tutorial wasnt much
help so I went on and found a terric sight called red bubble. The
tutorial showed me through the steps and reminded me on what I had
4. Assets Achilles The Rock Minotaur Athena App Logo These
assets appear either in the game or in have something to do with
the game so people can relate it to Achilles.
5. First Wallpaper My Reaction: I like the rst attempt, nothing
too fancy. Colours work well together, browns, reds, greys mix well
with the white background. Looks too simple, a bit like cheap
wrapping paper too. Clients Reaction: To many grey colours, needs
something else like a background change. Helmet is most recurrent
theme, mix it up a bit. Text shows o Greek theme which is
6. Next Step.. The client told me that the white background
isnt effective especially when there is a lot of grey on top of it
making it a dull mix - I am going to make the background the same
colour as the background as the app icon. Im going to keep some of
the greys in with the wallpaper but with the new background they
shouldnt cause a problem, the major helmet theme will die down a
tad as there are other areas of Achilles we can present. Make the
text a bigger part of the wallpaper.
7. Second Wallpaper My Reaction: Better use of colour in the
background, brings out colours. Items are blurred which is not
good, technical error. Use of main character instead of just the
helmet resolves the over use of helmet issue. Clients Reaction:
Lighter background, dierent shade. Use less assets, take rock out
as it looks confusing. Still have helmet structure from rst
attempt. Helmet as A in Achilles, not so much a good move.
8. Next Step.. Client seemed more pleased with rst wallpaper, I
am going to strip the second one down with everything that the
client didnt like so the rocks, the background colour, the use of
the helmet as an A and start a fresh. I have a good idea of what
sort of style of client wants now and having learnt from the last
two wallpapers I am pretty sure I can nail it here. If I look back
to the RedBubble tutorial I noticed that the background they made
isnt as crowded as mine, maybe thats one of the problems - the
simpler, the better.
9. Third Wallpaper My Reaction: Better colour than second
design. Everythings in focus. Assets look good. Clients Reaction:
Looks more connected. Colour complements maroon colour in helmet
and text better. Good not many greys as before. Background colour
could go a shade lighter. Assets could be smaller. !
10. Next Step.. Ive leant how to compose my assets in the grid
which I position everything in, where as before I thought I had to
ll every gap but now I know gaps are necessary. I dont need to
arrange the assets again, only make them smaller. Look into similar
shades around the colour I am using at the moment for the
background. Make sure the new background shade still complements
the maroon and grey colours.
11. Final Wallpaper Ive taken the clients feedback on the third
wallpaper in and come back with this. Most of the comments on the
third wallpaper were positive which only allowed me to adjust small
details in the design. Adjustments consist of a background colour
change and resizing the assets to complement the size of the page.
The process has shown me what works and how to improve on my rst
design, the rst design is linked to my nal design a lot. This
wallpaper opens up promotional and advertising possibilities for
