Dorrie Sacks, writer, internet host, and voice actor, who uses the handle LovelyDorrie, commissioned me to design her a new business card. We wanted to create a digital persona for her inspired by magical girl anime like Sailor Moon and Madoka Magica, visuals novel games like Doki Doki Literature Club, and soft goth + lolita fashion.
Keeping that in mind, we decided the whole card should be illustrated with pixel art and laid out similarly to a video game title screen. The logo is inspired by shojou anime titles, street art tags, and ribbon.
Dorrie, similar to magical girl anime, often combines a cute aesthetics with scary, serious, and sometimes tragic, storylines. Broken hearts are a perfect icon to represent that blend of cute+creepy and appear throughtout the design, from the barettes in her hair to the buckles in her shoes. I also just had to include her kitties Pepper and Layla.
