I loved the Jurassic Park segment during the Big Live Live Show Live 3 and the moment I heard Ryan say it was as yet unnamed, I tweeted him my idea for a name and he's down for it!

So that got me psyched! The BLLSL 3 ended, Mile High Breaking Brad started and I decided to leave for dinner. I returned to fire up the stream and watch Brad's last two runs and his triumphant victory! Go #TEAMBRAD!

While still laughing/cheering from the hilarious high that was Brad's victory, I decided to pop open Photoshop and make a logo / wallpaper for the new segment "Jurassic Lark"!

Sometimes, the best solution is the simplest. The Jurassic Park logo is so iconic and so great, I wanted to try and keep as much of it as possible. I originally sketched Patrick's head silhouette but it seemed like such a shame to lose the dinosaur face. Let's face it, Patrick's best identifier is his awesome hair. So I gave the T-Rex a Patrick style hairdo and left it at that! Also, making an "L" to matching the logotype wasn't too rough. Like I said, with this one simpler is better.

Like my last wallpaper release, trying to hit every pixel size for people's screens is a bit crazy, so I made high res wallpapers for different screen ratios. If your screen is a ratio other than 16:9 or 16:10 let me know! The desktop versions are probably bigger than most laptop screens, but the 16:9 & 16:10 ratio should scale to cover all of the display sizes (made by Apple at least).

Jurassic Lark:

(hosted on my dropbox, so let me know if any errors occur):

iPhone Sized: 640 x 960, 143kb

iPad Sized: 2048 x 2048, 585kb

Desktop (16:9 ratio) : 588kb (16:9 Ratio Scales for 11" Macbook Air, All iMacs and PCs with screens of that ratio.)

Desktop (16:10 ratio) : 597kb (16:10 Ratio Scales for 13" Macbook Air, All Macbook Pros and PCs with screens of that ratio.)

Like my last stuff, the Giant Bomb crew can use it however they like, for video/shirt/posters or whatever. Ha although, this is SO MUCH like the original logo, I'm really not sure if this even counts as a fair use type of situation. But hey, DESIGN FINDS A WAY. ;)

Enjoy the wallpapers duders and dudettes!

I missed part of the show, are Patrick and Ryan just gonna do quick looks of all the Jurassic Park games?

#9 Posted by c_rakestraw (853 posts) -

Perfect.

I think so..? I missed the intro to the segment, but it definitely felt that way. They played 2 pretty awful Jurassic Park games for a couple of minutes. I'm guessing the actual feature will be regular quick look length (30+ min)?

#14 Posted by wild_fire987 (50 posts) -

Yes, yes, yes!

#15 Posted by The_Nubster (2255 posts) -

That is awesome. President T-Rex should look in to growing an afro.

#16 Posted by ildon (378 posts) -

That logo is awesome. Good work.

#17 Posted by chilibean_3 (1655 posts) -

You've done well, brandonleedy. You've done well.

Both of Patrick's features were great and I'm looking forward to more.

I think Patrick mentioned in a ILM episode that his friends gave him every Jurassic Park game ever made as a wedding gift, so my guess is that they're planning to quick look (?) the pile. :)

Sure! But man, I'm a PC user and I don't see my kind of PC in the description after the ratios. Whatever shall I do?! ╚(•⌂•)╝

Bad jokes aside, it's a cool and funny design.

Too cool for school! This is so rad.

#31 Posted by ratzombie (170 posts) -

Wow, great work. I hope they use it.

#32 Posted by BraveToaster (12589 posts) -

This community is filled with talented motherfuckers.

#33 Posted by Barrock (3545 posts) -

I really hope it isn't Patrick and Ryan. I don't think they have chemistry.

#34 Posted by ibruemleve (38 posts) -

Great Logo!, also really liked the segment even if it was just two of the many JP games. Hope to see more!

#35 Edited by Bane122 (799 posts) -

It'd make a great shirt but would they get in trouble with Universal if they did that?

#36 Posted by LegendaryChopChop (1213 posts) -

Excellent.

I personally cannot wait for the look at Jurassic Park: The Screensaver.

#37 Posted by Cowmeat (142 posts) -

That's great.

#38 Posted by bibamatt (1089 posts) -

Wow, I missed the BLLSL. but if Patrick is doing Quick Looks of all the Jurassic Park games then... I'm TOTALLY DOWN WITH THAT! Like Patrick. I've always had a JP obsession. Around the Mega Drive/SNES era, I couldn't get enough of the JP games, even the shitty ones. Great work!

#39 Posted by cthomer5000 (817 posts) -

Literal LOL for me. I love this place

#40 Posted by Leg_of_Time (21 posts) -

Perfect logo! :D

#41 Posted by TheSouthernDandy (3903 posts) -

Yup. Yes. Absolutely. Shut it down cause you've solved it.

#42 Posted by selbie (1929 posts) -

Now for a music theme.

There is nothing more suitable :P

#43 Posted by chriscalla (69 posts) -

My jaw literally dropped open when I scrolled down to reveal the logo. Bra-vo!

#44 Posted by jonnyboy (2920 posts) -

T Rex is now 100% sexier, good job.

#45 Posted by Vexxan (4623 posts) -

Simple and great. I think Patrick's segments were best next to the last Breaking Brad.

#46 Posted by Mezmero (1961 posts) -

Simply amazing. I laughed quite heartily. I can't tell if a black dinosaur with a jew fro is racist or not.

#47 Posted by dropabombonit (1492 posts) -

Fucking awesome job

#48 Posted by Demoskinos (15009 posts) -

Glorious

Woah! Thank you all for the super positive responses! Both here and on twitter have been blowing up since I've posted and that is always encouraging.

I've been a long-time listener and reader but I've only been a subscribed, contributing member here for about a month. And I have to say, it's really great to be apart of the GiantBomb community and find such kind people and such a good reception for these crazy designs I try in my free time. Not to mention, there is such a killer group of fellow designers & artists here in the GB Community making awesome stuff all the time. It's an honor to be in such stellar company.

Ha I imagine if Giant Bomb ever wanted to expand its design team, they could fill quite a few positions with those of us designing cool things around here!

So I just wanted to formally say thank you to the duders and dudettes, and I'm glad to be a subscribing member. Can't wait to see what happens in the next year!

Couldn't have said it better. I had nothing to do with this, but this is exactly how i feel about the community, even though i don't participate too much...

oh and the designs for the awesomely named Jurassic Lark is totally rad.
