Acadien Groupe de Réflexion (AGdR) Games approached me to create a logo for one of their new games, Face Off.
Face Off is a deck management strategy game, using different factions to determine which is the strongest.
It was important that the logo was not specific to any faction as it would seem the game favored certain factions over others. As you can see in my earlier versions I made this mistake with the use of guns and swords.
The final logo's idea came about from Game of Throne's, Season 7 promo trailer, where Cersei Lannister stated: "Lannister. Baratheon. Stark. Tyrell, they’re all just spokes on a wheel. This one’s on top and that one’s on top and on and on it spins, crushing those on the ground..."
We thought it was a great idea, but instead using a wheel we chose to use an octagram, each point representing a different faction.
