Journey to the west


Our concept is greatly influenced by the kind of terrain that was on the Silk Road. The main terrains includes desert, mountainous region and ocean.

Choice of Colour 

We chose to work with black, gold and silver to match with our Silk Road theme and the architecture of Elphi. The tones that we are working on as more muted, which are generally calming to look at and demonstrate a subtle dance between scenes.

Art Direction

We wanted to match with the architectural design that is found in Elphi and using those elements to compose an abstract version of the terrains.
