Grand Kingdom "Grand Edition" Limited Edition
When NIS America made the limited edition for “Grand Kingdom,” we created a set of art prints, metal lapel pins, a faux-leather hardcover art book, a soundtrack, and also included several posters.
Assignment: Design a hardcover art book showing off art from the developers, a set of lapel pins, a set of art prints, a soundtrack, 2 limited edition boxes, and the game cover. Additionally, replace Japanese text in the comic book style manual with translated English, and create a 3D beauty shot of the full set.
Inspiration: Dungeons & Dragons artwork and publications
Inspiration for the Grand Kingdom Art Book
Call to Arms and Premium Packaging
Coming up with a name for the soundtrack was one part of the process for designing it. For the main collectors’ box, a collage of characters was embossed onto the front and coated with a UV spot gloss to give it an extra premium look.
Art Book Cover
The cover of the book was bound in a faux leather, stamped with a Celtic pattern, and finished with a prominent symbol from the game printed in silver ink.
Metal Lapel Pins
To create these lapel pins, symbols from the game were converted into one color vector shapes in Adobe Illustrator and sent to the factory. We experimented with several finish types, but ultimately decided on a worn brass finish.
