2016 konplosion web logo

Project Summary

LINK: Konsplosion.com
BUILT WITH: WordPress
WORK: Branding, Graphic Design, Website Development, Flyer Design & Printing

This year, apart from designing the website, I also received the opportunity to create the overall branding image for Konsplosion! 2016. Konsplosion is an annual multi-genre comic convention located in Fort Smith, Arkansas that normally takes place in September. I started as their webmistress in 2015 and the website has evolved since then.

The show producers wanted clean web design but still keeping a fun edge; the branding graphics would have to reflect this. So I started with the logo - a classic comic font with a classic comic starburst for that classic geeky look. Afterwards, I added the little smoke clouds to emphasize the "splosion" in Konsplosion (insert chuckle here).

I kept the branding consistent with the use of the convention colors - purple and green - as well as the use of various comic elements. When I worked on the flyers and Facebook cover, I added the tone gradients for pizzaz. Social media graphics always need a little bit more pizzaz, but they shouldn't detract from the core information you're wanting to convey.
