Chrononatus and Early American Chrononauts Rebrand by abnormalbrain
Chrononatus and Early American Chrononauts Rebrand
When Looney Labs asked me to redesign their old Chrononauts box and their 'Early American' (EAC) version, it was a pretty tough design challenge. Not only did we need to differentiate between the original game and the EAC version, but 'Early American' sounds as exciting as a high school history lesson.

So my solution was to create an interesting, flowing, abstract design for the main Chrononauts game, and then to alter a similar design with steampunk elements for EAC.

To be clear, the game is about time travel, not steampunk, but just that suggestion on the packaging created a much different perception of the game. The steampunk gears wrap around the corners of the box and there is a steampunk-styled timepiece in place of the simple clock on the original version of the game. Also, the electric design on the front of the box was adapted to a more 'red, white and blue' color scheme.

Derek Ring is a commercial illustrator who designs Halloween masks and props, illustrates games, comics, silkscreens, skateboards, and whatever else seems interesting this week. He has exhibited his work in New York, Boston and and his home town of Worcester. Ladies love him, girls adore him. Even the ones who never saw him like the way that he rhymes at a show. The reason why, man, I don't know.
Hey Deviant-Tarts! Anyone in the Boston area this weekend might be interested in stopping by the gallery opening at Space 242, Friday, January 29. 6-8pm, 242 E. Berkeley St, Boston. Great gallery and I've seen most of the robot-themed pieces, a very cool show, in which I have a few pieces. Also- it's sponsored by Harpoon, so free beer if you're over 21. Just RSVP at the website below if you're coming.

Hey Derek, I see Chikara and Rotary Games are bringing Rudo Resurrection to Kickstarter. Are you in on any of that?
