T-Shirt Illustration, Program Book, Badge, Postcard

Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign, Bamboo Tablet

Year 3 of CONsole Room also lined up with the 50th Anniversary of the Cybermen, a monster in the TV show Doctor Who. The convention decided to celebrate with a matching theme, which involved a new illustration and new 2016 advertising postcards, program book, and convention attendee badges.

The t-shirt shows a simple depiction of our not-yet-announced (at the time) mascot, Cy the Cyberman, holding a 50th Birthday Cake and ready to celebrate. The logo and date are drawn on as a frosting decoration. The design was screen printed in four colors on navy blue t-shirts that ranged in adult sizes from small through 5X. Halftones provide a candlelit glow across the image. The image was created in Adobe Photoshop.

The program book was filled with the schedule for the 3-day event, guest bios, and helpful information about our special events. I also included new activities to help make the event more engaging, such as a checklist of things to check out at the event and a section for notes at the back. The program book was created in Adobe InDesign.

New postcards were created for advertising purposes, featuring a modern retro look where 50 years past meets the present. And new badges, featuring images of our three guests and a two-sided image, pulled in the cyberman and modern retro look as well. Both were created in Adobe Photoshop.
