Having worked on many projects with Myriad Media on various IBM business units, we know their brand guidelines. At the same time, we wanted to give this group, X-Force, a distinct look. We took IBM’s blue & green palette and employed simple, bold icons to create dramatic scenes.
As designers and animators, sometimes we can get too excited and carried away at the chance to create something fun. In this case, “cyber attack” and “virus” are key words that could set us off.
There were a lot of cool things we initially sketched out with those words in mind. However, we refrained from diving too much into “style” and made sure “function” was the focus.
