Andrew Ryan’s worst nightmare! A wonderful dystopian mash up. Just as Freder had to journey under the ground to learn the ugly truth of his city, so too does the audience of Bioshock go under the sea. The elongated design with the figure at the bottom mimics the depths to which the characters go through. The geometric, art deco style is justly used to convey both subject matter. I enjoy the warm antique gold tones on the black background. The typography uses cut out, angular shapes again tying both subject matter up nicely.

The shirt illuminates Elsa, The Ice Queen’s magic. The impressive glow effect achieved by the contrast of the bright blues against the dark background is incredible. I greatly enjoy the out of focus snowflakes represented by lighter circles floating in the mid-ground and background. Her cape has a nice dynamic pose defined out of the negative space. Else’s pose is interesting, as the figure is facing away and looking back. The glow around her head keeps the focus on her.

Wyldstyle the MasterBuilder is doing her best Rosie the Riveter impression here. A classic design that translates well into Wyldstyle’s bold attitude and gender breaking perception. The combination of bright bold colors, and thick lines nicely renders her strength.
