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!

No Caption Provided

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"!

No Caption Provided

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 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)?

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.

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!

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.
