Fighter Physics Icon

Fighter Physics Icon

“When Fighter Physics gained traction, we wanted to amp up our game icon. Rather than just brushing up the colors, Mike convinced us to do a full redesign, and he blew us away with his work. He captured the iconic style of our game while creating something new that fits right in with the games currently leading the store charts. Very happy with what Mike did for us!” -Markus Nigrin, Galactic Bits

Acceleroto – new website

Acceleroto – new website

It was a pleasure working with Bryan to create a fresh new look for his website. The goal was clarity and simplicity, both in the visuals and the navigation. There is as little as possible displayed on each page; there’s no sidebar or subnav, and the search field is hidden away behind the top edge […]

They had 3d files of their fighter jets, but I wanted the icon to have more of an illustrated look to it (as well as be infinitely scaleable). With some helpful tips from Pete Parisi of @fuzzycube, I used a technique I’ve […]

“Mike Berg did incredible work for us on Disc Drivin’. He really understood the game well and added many of his own great ideas to our requests. He effortlessly adapted to an existing art style, and made significant improvements and additions to both our UI and in-game assets. Mike is very professional, makes beautiful designs and artwork, and completes the work quickly. Additionally, his communication skills are the best of anyone we’ve worked with. He responds quickly to requests and feedback, and is terrific at iterating. We definitely want to work with Mike on future projects, and cannot recommend him enough.” – Michael Bean, Pixelocity
