PIXEL ART VIDEO GAME BOOK
FALL 2015

This book details the design process of creating a new symbol that integrates with the style of the Washington National Zoo's existing symbol set.  The species I chose to design the symbol for is the Tanystropheus, an ironically ill-designed dinosaur whose neck was extremely long, causing its bones to become extremely weak and the dinosaur to become extinct relatively quickly. In this book, I chose to treat the added dinosaur symbol as a new character selection icon for a fictional video game, and created the book in the style of indie pixel art.
