The aim of the project was to research and visualize one mythological creature of each country, to show their variety and uniqueness.
124 original characters, 75 of their adaptations, 6 maps of the continents, decorative letters and, finally, the map of the whole World of Cryptids – all accomplished in 97 days. The work that lasted over 13 weeks was a great challenge to all the team.
The essential features of the graphic style:
• The linear drawing of the characters is based on a logical construction: the lines meet each other and lead the eyes along the silhouette;
• Characters look like small sculptures. Such an impression is conveyed by a combination of geometric forms, the graphic features of academic drawing, and by rendering the characteristics of certain materials, such as, iron and gypsum;
• Each cryptid resembles a sign and can be well identified in small size;
• All characters conclude a unified set of cryptids.
Big thanks to all the team of the project.
