Another honor for me to design the background, header and avatar for WuTang-Corp.com, the official Twitter page for WuTang-Corp, home of the Wu-Tang Clan and Killa Beez (http://www.wutang-corp.com).
The client gave me some direction as to what he wanted, but I wanted to take it a step further – instead of using the regular “W” logo from the Wu, I made it more polished and shiny, like an icon you’d find on an Apple product. I felt this gave it an up-to-date feel while still maintaining the ‘razor sharp’ edge of the famous logo.
The avatar used the new “W” logo and I made the wording in black on a white overlay and high-res so you can see it better on tweets and on mobile devices:
The header was sized so that when the avatar sits on the image on the main page (http://twitter.com/WuCorp), it doesn’t cover up any of the Wu-Tang member heads – it looks like it’s floating right in the middle of them. I also made the header image grayscale and a bit darker to bring out the white lettered information better:
The background contains information that is simple and concise – “W” logo with title and URL. The group picture gave it a bit more flair and was sized so that those with larger monitors can see more of it. Client wanted a dark brick wall texture so I put that in but made it more subtle to give it a more refined look:
I really enjoyed working on this project and hope I can work with Wu-Tang again in the future. Props goes out to Wu-Tang; please go visit the WuTang-Corp.com Twitter page and follow them!
