GGT or the Good Gaming Token is a virtual currency that players use in the sports fantasy card game- Striker. The goal was to create a currency that stands out from other virtual currencies already present in the market.
To convert a 2D vector icon into a 3D asset to be used in the app's UI. Exploring different materials and textures but not straying too far from the existing GGT form.
Previously a 2D vector icon was being used to represent the virtual currency in the app.
We created a 3D rendition of the existing design but the choice of design and texture was unable to bring out the "fantasy" aspect of the coin.
We saw that using illuminating materials help in creating the virtual appeal of the coin.
We settled on a translucent material with wavelike forms embedded with a slight glow .
A stacked version of the finalized GGT coin design.
