Glorup, coat of arms restoration

Our local landlord, the owner of Glorup Manor challenged us to restore his coat of arms from an old lowres scan. Ordinarily that type of work would be handled using vector shapes, but since the graphics had to retain a vintage look we kept it in bitmap and ended up repainting the image at a higher resolution. We’re happy to help out and perhaps the image will end up on local signage sometime during 2020 🙂

The initial image and the end result can be seen above.

Det’Vin

We’ve all been through strange times caused by COVID-19 and some businesses have had to redefine themselves in order to survive.. Sometime during May we we’re contacted by a dynamic duo with a strong knowledge base in wine. Their task was simple: Convert their wine tasting setup from a cafe based experience to a series of digital media.

We helped make the transition happen by creating the logo and a series of small animations for use on their Youtube channel. The business is still adapting to the new media, but is moving towards a stable format which can be viewed here ( preview only, since embedding isn’t allowed ), the channel is live every friday:

Eve Online competition winner

10 years ago CCP, the creators of the science fiction IP: Eve Online created a “Design a starship” competition. Mike entered, but was a little speculative on how the game would implement the winning design, there’s 4 factions in the game you see and if you give 1 faction a new ship, you have to give the remaining 3 some sort of compensation or the most obvious choice: 3 other ships of their own. So the entered design was created to be part of a neutral faction easing the implementation balance-wise. CCP however rewrote the competition rules and chose 4 winners instead of 1. The Seraphim design that Mike created was chosen and implemented as the “Gallente Talos” and instead of a destroyer, it was turned into a battlecruiser, exciting! right? 😀

The ship also appears in the spin off game Valkyrie, you can glimpse it in the background here: Valkyrie
