Bungie hits hard for Bungie day this year with a new contest for artists: You can have your own design printed on a shirt, if the community likes it. The community has always been amazing for me so I got in !
Here are my designs so far.
Of course, I could have picked UIdren but I’m pretty sure I would have been the only one to wear it. So I picked everyone’s favourite seller, the agent of the Nine.
You can vote for Xûr here: https://www.bungie.net/en/Community/Detail?itemId=208998124
Next, I picked everyone’s angry daddy, Lord Shaxx. You want the Crucible ? Listen to that robot out there. Lord Shaxx IS the Crucible.

Bungie posted another one of my creation to their community pages on social networks !
After my comics on Cayde and Eris Morn (probably my most popular and most featueed comics to this day, even retweeted by Cayde’s voice actor, Nathan Fillion WOOOOOOOT) it’s the Titan I made for my friend who made it to their front page!
Of course it became a pretext to spit on titans, defend titans, spit on Bungie for nerfing Hammer of Sol (thank you Bungie for this), for nerfing everything, for blaming Bungie for approximately every update, and so on and so on.
But still ! I’m happy 🙂
It seems that my most popular comics on Bungie.net won’t be featured since I use my art to complain about the Crucible, but this is a reward nontheless from Bungie sempai :}
Friday 11th was a brand new experience for 6 Numericall students, including myself. We met people from PWC, a company that makes analysis and reports about any given subjects, for companies as well as European commissions or even cities. But PWC has a major problem nowadays…
Switching to digital
The times are changing. Papers aren’t as sold nor read as they used to be. Everyone is on his/her smartphone and everyone wants a quick access to the information they need. That’s why articles tend to be shorters nowadays and why a 200 pages report without any color or image can be appealling, even if you are the one who ordered the report.
That’s why PWC came to us with a problem, waiting for the brand new developpers to find solutions with their new way of thinking.
If at first I was a bit panicked about the whole thing and what they expected from us, in the end, I found digital solutions popping in my mind as they were explaining their problems.
Too much text? Switch to infographics. What would I do with too much text ? Hide it, and display it on demand with a quick AJAX request triggered with a click. No more flooding, and the user can pick whatever piece of information he needs.
With a database and PHP, a customized report can even be made with FPDF. Every problem can find a solution, especially when they give you so many things to trigger your creativity…
In the end, it was a good way to introduce us to the real challenge of a growing entreprise on the digital market. And I kept the stress reliever !
