Entry Description

This logo was designed for a new 3D TV and Musical show. Senzo, Mimo, Gala & Bella are videogame wharacters and the members of a cyber-vintage band : The Podcats. Carefree, they are all-out baby-rockers with a thing for pop-rock tunes. As the Podcats evolve in virtual worlds and interact with their inhabitants, thair fast-paced adventures joyfully caricature these universes.


Ian Parovel (born 1983 in France), is a French art director, film director, game designer, screenwriter, and designer living in Saint-Germain-en-Laye.

While he worked for many boardgames & videogames, he's mainly known for his contributions on the visual aspects of the games.
We owe him many novelties and innovations these last years, like the train components and the "time-travelling-car" works on Colt Express, Flat "video-game" design UI in Deus, as well as more than 50+ published projects.
