WELCOME TO THE OFFICIAL ZIRKEL BLOG!
Alright, I admit it: I put up this blog as a marketing tool. When you search for „indie game marketing“ you find myriads of sites with tips and advice. One top recommendation: you need a blog! You gotta have a blog! So here it is.
But this doesn’t mean that I can’t write interesting things here.
I was reluctant at first to writing my own blog because I thought that I didn’t have anything to tell. But the more I thought about it, the more topics came to my mind which might be interesting for others to read and, also important, fun for me to muse about.
When I studied communication design it was often expected that one would not only show the result but also the process – how the work happened, how it changed over the course of time, and why it eventually turned out the way it did. This is usually the part no one likes to do because when you are finally done with the thing, you usually want to take a break and then move on to the next fresh thing. But looking back and reflecting on your work can teach you many insights which you may not had while you were busy designing. This can eventually make you a better designer. In part, I will use this blog to do this, regarding ZIRKEL.
So again, welcome. I hope you find something worthwhile. Maybe I can even make it to your bookmarks bar
More coming soon!
