How's this? It's the new cover for yet another version of my GOW:Wii Edition box. Credits to Drakxxx for his awesome logo. And yes...I added ALL the soldiers...
Things I Already Know: no esrb, no dev logo, no wifi logo....those things will be added last
It looks pretty good, but it looks as if you're putting the two guys at the top the centre of attention, which IMO should be Dom and Marcus, but all of the COG squad members. Try playing around with the renders, rearrange them then see how it goes.
I need help with a new satire, any ideas? Or should I continue with making unofficial boxes?
I've thought about Pokemon Reed version or Pokemon Dungeon: Reed Rescue team. But I've never done it by some reasons; I found no good material, the joke would have been hated (If some one low-ranked made it atleast.) but you can take the (bad) idea if youre totally out of own. I think you could make a good one tho, but as I said, It's not a verry good work
It's just a satire idea I had but never will make, so anyone who thinks they can make it, take tha idea...
i know you already answered his question EL but just to say you also need to make sure you have no background colour so that you see the white and grey box's behind it!
then save as png. and the where the white and grey box's are will appear transparent and take the colour of the website colour behind it!
Haha well, I can't really teach you anything. The only way I believe that you can get the best out of your typography is inspiration. Look at great examples of typographic posters and advertisements. Go to SmashingMagazine.com. It's an excellent Photoshop and Illustrator help and inspiration site, and IMO the best one out there. They have different stories on beautiful typographic material, and even provide professional fonts for free. Worth a look.
Well, it looks really good so far, but firstly, I think you should change the sypnosis font. Trajan Pro does not fit this one. What I did for mine was to look for fonts that would resemble film noir and graphic novels. It would be closer to the feel for this film.
You should also remove the Octopus from the back, the one "standing" next to the Spirit. The blending looks terrible IMO. And also, you should fill in the gap between the tagline and the sypnosis.
As for the front, you could move the three taglines below the logo and place them on the tie. Try to rotate them until they are at a perfect angle which fits nicely. And on top of the logo, you could put the list of main actors in the film (Gabriel Macht, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson etc.)

I need idea's for the back and front
Well, I can't really give any suggestions, as I have no idea what direction you are going with the box. You should do a rough idea on the front and back first, then show it to me. Good luck!
