Website

A responsive and dynamic website for our collective ‘De Computerjongens’. Designed in a vibrant 8-bit gaming style.

The website is made using the Divi builder and WordPress. It features numerous custom-coded elements and includes several pixel art animations.

Mitchel van de Water was mostly the creative brain behind the art direction.

‘De Computerjongens’ is a collective dedicated to hosting digital workshops for high schools on various topics such as: AI, AR and gaming.

Transforming my good friend Mitchel and myself into 8-bit characters was quite fun. The 8-bit gaming style is further emphasized through the creation of vibrant stickers used throughout the branding.

Branding

For the branding we went with bright colors inspired by 'Y2K' color pallets. Combining this with an 8bit style makes sure we emphasize fun, digital and young.

AI

Normally we are not too keen on using GAI, but for this project it seemed fitting (since we are teaching students on how to use GAI and all). It also compliments our 8-bit futuristic world in which De Computerjongens live.
