MoMA posters

MoMA-AmanitaDesign1

These posters were created for a fictional exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art called “The Art of Indie Games,” featuring the game design company Amanita Design as the main artist. (Amanita Design really does have beautiful indie games that truly are art, so you should definitely check them out if you’re into that).

The style was driven by the company’s symbolic Amanita mushroom, along with their signature style of earth tones, textures, and layered 2D art with an almost hand-drawn quality.

While I began this assignment prior to reading this article, apparently the MoMA will be opening a Games as Art expo in March! — Guess I’m not the only one hoping to see games appreciated as art in these kinds of ways. Hopefully it can move beyond the classics and into the indie scene, where there is so much talent and creativity!

PROCESS - I started out by scanning my drawing and digitizing it with the pen tool in Illustrator. Then I brought it into Photoshop to add the textures and effects.
