Hi all my name is Lachlan aka GhostSnacks!
I'm a graphic designer and visual artist based in the sunshine state of Queensland Australia, I'm a huge fan of early to mid 2000s games, music, movies, you name it. Some of my fav games include Halo 2, DOOM 3, Splinter Cell Chaos Theory, Ridge Racer V, REZ...the list goes on.

It's really nice to jump back into the world of forums again after so many years.
Really looking forward to hanging out with y'all on here !

Hello! Zero for short is fine. I came across Famiclub while browsing cohost, specifically the Arena II jam while scrolling the 'fantasy console' tag over there haha. I don't have any experience with graphic design, but I do enjoy browsing typefaces and trying to find them when one catches my eye. I even asked a friend once about the font they were using for watermarking their work (it was Bahnschrift Condensed Light iirc) lol. So a little interest in the field :)

I'm from California but am now in Georgia, and previously a data analyst. I enjoy voiceover and voice acting, writing, 3d art, and I'm taking a swing at making a game (so learning more about UX and design would probably be beneficial).

Speaking of games, a piece of graphic design I like from one would have to be the menus in Project Gotham Racing 4. Love the silhouettes contrasted by the High Def cars. And I'm especially a fan of the dynamic music system they have in there. Wish there was a better example of it, but here ya go! I'm gonna throw in another example and say the in-world helmet HUDs of Star Wars Republic Commando (and Metroid Prime, though I never played it).

Hey Zero! Thanks for joining 😁

Feel free to join in on the Arena jam if you like! Even if you're not a graphic designer, it's been fun to think about what those fiction consoles might have looked like or worked in different time periods.

We have little Font thread going here if you've got any favourite typefaces, websites, or anything related to type that you'd like to share. :)

Hi I’m Ruby! I joined up to talk about famicase after seeing the post about this forum on cohost. I really like the original famicom dragon quest box art designs by Akira Toriyama. I’m not a graphic designer, but graphic design has always interested me and I’d love to learn more. I used to work as a professional illustrator and cartoonist, but now I go to school full-time to study computer engineering and Japanese language. I’m hoping to submit something for famicase for the first time this year. The project is really cool to me.

Edit: Forgot to mention I’m from Tucson, Arizona in the US!

Hey Ruby, welcome!! I've seen you around cohost quite a bit. Love your art, and your website! Your little DQ illustrations are amazing.
