A possible design for the new TimeBase logo? Well, maybe. This logo – an amalgam of the 70s diamond logo and the 80s neon logo was designed by Paul Ferry. What do you think? Continue reading Logo-polis

Costume trials for Kash and a Scav Drone. There’ll be additional white face make-up for the Scavs but I’m not sure of the specifics yet. The idea is they live underground and are very pale. Continue reading Trial by Costume
