Designs to geek out over: Olly Moss

In Look, Play, Watch

Olly Moss has, for a young designer (he’s still only 27), built up a résumé that would make any film buff and gaming nerd weep with jealousy. From exhibitions to special edition movie posters, the Winchester-based designer has worked with a range of clients from Studio Ghibli, DC Comics and Warner Brothers, to stunning effect.

The wealth of subjects he touches upon – from superheroes from both Marvel and DC universes, game covers and ­(my personal favourite) 8-bit china plates with original Gameboy games on them – demonstrates a keen eye for detail and a bold, unapologetic style that makes his artwork particularly striking.

For a more extensive look at his work, it’s worth checking out his blog, which contains a whole load more of his work, including his cast-offs, side projects, and the occasional piece that never made the final cut.

Interestingly, Moss has just started working as an art-worker for Campo Santo, which boasts Jake Rodkin and Sean Vanaman (the writers on Telltale’s The Walking Dead) among its staff. Whatever they’re planning to create is still under wraps but, if Moss’ previous work is anything to go by, it’s likely to look phenomenal.

Here’s the video he took of Campos Santos’ trip to Yosemite to gain inspiration for the game:
