I just realized I didn’t have an elevator pitch for Darkstage Studio. Whenever people ask me what it’s about I use terms such as “like” and “sort of”, which do not convey much confidence…
An elevator pitch, as implied by the previous sentence, is a short description of your business or idea that you can deliver in a few words to almost anyone, and especially potential clients. Here’s a first draft.
- Darkstage studio specialized in visualization content for the horror, fantasy and sci-fi entertainment genres. My passion for these themes has motivated me to start Darkstage as a freelancer. I collaborate with studios and bring in my expertise as an animation, illustrator and 3D designer in projects related to themes of darkness, horror and macabre.
What do you think? Let me know if you have any idea that can push this pitch even more.
I tried to play with the Darkstage logo theme a bit. This is what I came up with. I think I’ll stick it in the “about” section on the upcoming Darkstage Studio website. Click image to enlarge.
I do not write a lot these days. Every spare time I have I spend on building the Darkstage Studio website. It’s coming along nicely, I think, but I have a lot of work ahead of me. I do hope I get back to do some creative work soon. Coding is fun, but animating and drawing is even more.
This is how the site looks so far.
I’ve finished the main page along with a nice free slideshow plugin called Pikachoose. What’s left is building the rest of the pages, adding content and putting it on the interwebs.
So don’t think I gave up just yet only because I’m writing only This Week’s Discoveries posts. I’m up and well and pushing my dreams forward!
What do you think? I changed a lot since the last update. I gave it a more grungy look with more textures, a red sinister background, made changes to the fonts and made sure everything sits well on a grid.
I hope Darkstage will be up and running shortly.
Let me know what you think either here, or at Concept Feedback here.
After many changes, I finally upload something I’m quite satisfied with. Let me know what you think either by commenting here or on Concept Feedback.
I’m currently working on the Darkstage Studio website and logo. Darkstage is a personal project of mine, which I’ve not mentioned here yet, I think. I intend to offer my services and skills through this “brand”, but also to have a place and name to put all my dark artistic endeavors under, even if I don’t get to use it professionally. I’m not really sure what it’s going to end up being, I just know I want to do this!
Anyway, I have some logo ideas I wanted to put here for everyone to see and comment. I want this logo to convey the main artistic direction of Darkstage Studio, which is macbre, ironic and dark themes.
