First off, for those of you into the Wargame/Role-Playing Game, it’s not that Warhammer. This was a logo for a Mixed Martial Arts studio that I did through Empty Room Studios. Superficially, it does have some similarities to the game property. They both have a larger-than-life sense of design, with sensuous exaggerated musculature and rounded, yet chunky, massive form. The instructions from the customer were “an image of a viking/warrior/beastman smashing a warhammer (or probably a sledge hammer) into a stone version of their company name WarHammer MMA“.
