UBISOFT – Rainbow 6 Siege | Gator Weapon Skin by Zoe Love

View the full Ubisoft interview with Zoe Love here

rainbow 6 siege Gator skin by Zoe Love

For the past few months I have been working with Ubisoft to develop in-game content for Rainbowsix Siege.

How was this achieved?

The skin was recognized by the team at Ubisoft after I had casually posted a design I created as part of a self motivated fan art exercise seen below:

The Brand Director at Ubisoft enjoyed the design so much that he reached out to me, and communications/work on this project began.

After the design process had been completed the developers from Ubisoft Montreal then incorporated the skin into the game.

The Gator by Zoe Love is available in-game for 1000 renown.

If you play Rainbowsix Siege go grab my new P90 Gator skin guys!

Above: A very creative YouTube video thumbnail, YouTube supports up to 1920X1080 thumbnail sizes, though 1280X720 is the optimal. Its important to create a striking, eye catching design that best describes your video, and prompts viewers to click and watch it. Misleading or unrelated thumbnails are widely used to draw attention but frowned upon and could get your video removed if it receives enough complaints from audience members.

The thumbnail is used across YouTube and the web, in various sizes (predominantly small) so ensure any text used is fairly large and legible.

Software by Zoe Love

Above: EPIC/DERMIS™ UI/UX and software design. This software is currently in production and can be used to create and edit 2D/3D sprite sheets (like Minecraft for example) by painting directly onto 3D models (poly painting).

EPIC/DERMIS™ is the most easy to use yet powerful software available for 2D/3D pixel painting.

The software features a super simple organic painting experience. (because we are sick of mathematical non-creative approaches to design, that are completely divorced from designers and the design process). This software will be available on both iOS and Windows PC platforms.

The design: The design features a minimal Swiss/metro style UI, with simple to navigate menus and an expertly design, intuitive user friendly UX that is both easy and fun to use.

Stringent planning went into the layout and tool set to ensure the best design experience available, our core focus is fluid organic usability.

Release date: TBA
Platforms: iOS (initial release) Android, and eventually Windows.

After calibrating our new Samsung C1860FW printer we decided to test the prints on 900DPI  on200 g/m2 glossy cardboard which, we will increase to 380 g/mwhen the final set is complete.

Youtube | Branding Intro & Cover Art Specials

Youtube Branding Intro 2014

UPDATE: Don’t sweat, even though Youtube has discontinued this feature, branding videos can still be embedded into your production the standard way.

Youtube has recently launched a new feature called InVideo Programming, within this section you are provided with an option to add a 3 second Introduction video to your new or existing Youtube videos.

This is great news for anyone who wants to brand their content without having to re-upload the video, thereby causing you to lose the in-place statistics (views/likes/comments/shares) associated with the content in question.

Simply add your intro video to your Branding Intro collection. (Youtube wont allow any video longer than 3 seconds, so keep it short and be creative).

Another reason why this is such a great feature for content creators is, the ability build and grow your channel without having any specific branding embedded within the videos themselves . This will allow you to sell off your channel/property to potential media buyers who can then re-brand the newly purchased content/media/property with their existing branding/CID.

UPDATE: Sadly due to complaints by the Youtube community (what else is new) branding videos will be discontinued on Youtube as of the 31 March 2015, so unfortunately there goes another brilliant feature.

A Branding Intro can be used to:

•      (Obviously) Brand/Market your channel or product
•      Prompt views to subscribe
•      Prompt subscribers for a call to action
•      Market another user’s channel or product
•      Generate revenue

Youtube Channel Art diminsions:

•      Youtube recommends a minimum image size of 2560 X 1440
•      File size no larger than 2MB
•      Bare in mind the area in which the image will be cropped for each specific platform
