Destiny has consumed an embarrassing number of hours of my life, so when i was presented the opportunity to help Baxter redesign his Ishtar Collective fansite, I jumped at the opportunity. The site is an amazing resource that turns Destiny’s convoluted story fragments into categorized narrative chunks. Before long you’ll be knee deep in legends about sentient worm gods, dragons and Vex simulations!
Bungie’s art team was clearly inspired by mid century corporate design. It shows up in a lot of the game world and the concept art, but not so much in the web materials or the game’s UI. I wanted to use that visual inspiration to drive the aesthetic of the site, and it was a real joy to work in a clean grid system.
