Greetings fellow citizen! My favorite Infinity game podcasts, White Noise had a contest challenging fans to create a propaganda poster that could fit into the Infinity universe. Sweet! A contest that allows me to use my skills as a designer and my fandom for Infinity! Firstly I needed to do a little research.
Propaganda: information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote or publicize a particular political cause or point of view.
Just hearing the word conjures thoughts of Rosie the Riveter, bold red, white & black designs and of course subterfuge. So when deciding the subject for my poster I couldn’t think of anyone better than the shape-shifting master of impersonation, Speculo Killer from Combined Army.
Now that I had my lead character picked I needed some design inspiration. After getting sucked into a WW2/District 9 propaganda rabbit hole I had a rough concept in my head. Hopefully all that research didn’t flag me on some government watch list.
Subject, check! Reference and inspiration, check! It’s thumbnail time! I had a few ideas that I wanted to try but ended sort of mashing them up into one final design. Here’s my doodle masterpieces.
With that i give you the final product that won me the contest. WOOHOO! I want to give a big thank you to everyone out there who posted positive feedback and Likes for my design and, of course, the folks at White Noise podcast for putting the contest together. Your hours of audio entertainment has kept me company for many boring days at my desk. Until next time, may your dice always roll crits and that’s a wrap!
