F1 2018 Concept Covers

TheSevillista87TheSevillista87 Member Unleaded
After many hours of work, I and a friend have made a cover following the current style of Codemasters, with drivers and cars on this cover. We have chosen to put Sebastian Vettel in front to give a bit of variety with respect to covers of previous games, although soon we will publish in this same post several covers for different countries as it was done in F1 2017.


A few months ago I also published a cover with a completely different style, remembering the style used in F1 2010 / F1 2011. Which one would you prefer?

We hope you like it, we would appreciate constructive criticism. Soon we will publish a complete project in Behance with a menu concept and more.

Regards

    I as a designer find it awesome! Perfectly done mate!
    Only critic of my side is that Max is one of the most spoken person of this season so i can not imagine he is NOT on the cover.....

    But he is, next to Kimi. Great cover, I love it!

    This cover looks utterly brilliant. Looks much fresher than the previous ones. Also nice to see that you swapped the position of some drivers on the cover.

    In my opinion I prefer your current design, instead of the 2010/2011 look. Looks also good, but I still prefer a fresh one ;)

    I don't care too much what happened in the past. I prefer to focus on what is coming next and I am really looking forward to it.

    Simply racing a Formula 1 car is an achievement.

    You can't change what happened. But you can still change what will happen.

    I actually prefer the older 2010/2011 concept but they both look very good. Never been a huge fan of the way Codies are going with their covers in the last few years, they look too crowded and static and I prefer bigger, more isolated and impactful images as in your second cover

    Wonder how it looks on an Xbox Box? Must be even more brilliant than the PS4 version. o:)  I agree however with Larryl, Max should be on the cover instead of Ricciardo. He is the fastest of the two next to be spoken about the most.

    If you use ABS or Traction Control, you are no longer a racing driver.

    If I get a few more questions about my driving style I think I headbutt someone.

    I agree.

    Certainly if I was looking at new designs I would be more interested in new design concepts and ideas than rehashes of the current design. To tweak an existing concept (cluster of drivers and race car pick) is far less original and challenging than coming up with a new concept (driver and flag).

    The problem is that although I like the originality of the driver and flag concept, the execution doesn't work for me. The helment and flag merge into a sort of indistinct mess that looks like the terminator after he's been shot. The challenge is to try to make the flag and helment more distict and recognisable, without spoiling the subtle nature of the colour scheme too much.

    Great work, but you actually copied my logo, so please credit me. Anyway it's a good work, but I probably know wich will be the future Codemasters covers and it's not really like that, mine a little too.

    It'd be nice to have a cover with Lewis Hamilton not being the frontman for it.

    Looks stunning, job well done! Though i do hope codies step away from the whole 5 drivers lined up sort of thing, a change of pace every now and then  is never a bad thing

    He probably would be on the cover in covers in other countries. Like in the Netherlands and in Belgium they’ve had Stoffel and Max on the cover.

    This is just the f1 2018 logo codies have announced so...
