DOTA2 is the follow-up to the hit Mod for Warcraft III, DOTA. With the up-coming release of DOTA2, the client wanted a logo for their site to promote the game and provide news for all players regarding the release.
I was asked to design a logo that would incorporate the name and a well-known character, the Nevermore Shadowfiend. Drawing from the genre of the game; the typeface selected represented the Fantasy styles that have been present in gaming for quite some time. The Nevermore Shadowfiend was illustrated from scratch, using references of the character, allowing it to be easily recognized by all fans of the game.
The game looks very interesting, and when it is released, I will definitely be giving it a try.
