SbD Method is a first-person shooter savant who competed in the early days of Esports, leading a team that competed in professional Halo tournaments. Now he has been signed by Facebook Gaming to stream on their platform.

As part of this transition, Method knew he needed a professionally designed gamerpic (icon) and graphics for his Facebook Page. He wanted an ultra-aggressive look to match his play-style.

Method approached Nordeau to help him design this new brand identity.

Colin Finkle worked with him to bring his vision into reality. Method provided reference designs from other streamers and esports organizations that had the same aggressive look that he was after. Colin looked to the alt-art scene for inspiration; he saw a lot “robo-skeletons” that were creepy, yet had a grim-futuristic vibe that would lend well to esports. He sketched out a skeleton character that Method immediately connected with.

With a few tweaks, Colin’s sketch became the basis of SbD Methods new logo.

The rest of the branding took elements out of the apocalyptical skeleton and made them into graphics. The colors were pulled out directly from the logo. Blood red was chosen because it is the most aggressive color, in keeping with the confrontational vibe of the brand image.

Brand Identity Elements

Nordeau helped SbD Method with a new colour palette, logo, gamerpic, and Facebook Page.

Gamerpic

A gamerpic is a scaled down version of a logo to be an icon in places like Xbox Live, and Discord. The gamerpic for SbD Method focused on the face of the skeleton character, as it had contrasting details that could be seen even when scaled down to icon size.

Facebook Page
