This is probably one of the most creative crew we never had to deal with. As "Concept Artists" the three partners from Steambot have to illustrate and design complete universes for the Movies and the Video-game industries. Their job is to read a script sent by creative Director and design a universe out of it that will be built for the movie or integrated in the game.
At first these ideas are sketchy but are then improved with the project's artistic Director into accurate landscapes, characters, architectures, weapons, or even spaceships depending on the original script. Through the years the very talented team worked for movies such as Godzilla, Xmen, Tron legacy and on Video games like Batman Arkham, Call of Duty, Thief, Deus Ex etc.
We were in charge of conceiving and designing Steambot's new identity:
The logo represents the initials SB that stands for "Steam Bot" but also represents a cloud of smoke (Steam) released by a factory (Bot). A metaphor for this profession with so much creative freedom and at the same time so many specifications. The logotype needed to look discreet and feel strong. In order to be used as a signature seal, it needed to be graphically as compatible with both Sci-fi futuristic projects than with middle ages oriented designs.
In 2014 Steambot entered a new era. They closed their studios in LA and Austin, moved into bigger offices in the center of Montreal and started to focus on their own IPs (Intellectual Properties) such as the cartoon Urbance, Cyan, and many more to come! Stay connected!
