Animated Video Backgrounds Discord ❋ 2023

As a part of a broader mobile redesign campaign, Discord wanted to create unique video backgrounds to enrich user experience. This project endured multiple phases of concept development and revision, whittling down five concepts into three to be finished and animated. The assignment was uniquely challenging because it required developing a range of color, style, and genre options while keeping consistency with existing brand standards.

Three concepts were generated to cover a broad range of user interests and aesthetic preferences. Rough value studies were done first to gauge readability in the given space, followed by refined sketch that would be translated into vector-based artwork.
