Initially called “Achievement Haunter” when launched in 2018, Haunter is a spin-off web-series from Rooster Teeth’s most popular gaming group, Achievement Hunter. It is a parody ghost-hunting show. Each episode begins up in the group’s spooky treehouse where they tell stories of hauntings and paranormal rumblings. They then suit up in their ghost-hunting tactical gear and go to the locations of their stories’ alleged hauntings and antagonize whatever ghost or ghoul lives there while also pranking and scaring each other. A main feature of the show is also comedic ridiculous reenactments of the locations‘ backstories. The show is rambunctious and silly with just a hint of fright. I was assigned to develop the show’s branding, key art, and social media presence.
Full Lockup (2020)

“Achievement” was dropped from the show’s title after their first season to distinguish the show as not just for Achievement Hunter fans and so have better mass appeal. The mark is a testament to how serious Haunter takes itself as a scary show. The mark is a bruised and scuffed ghost fleeing with terror from what can only be the show hosts. All elements were rendered by hand. The logotype is blunt, thick, and a little warped, just like their ghost-hunting methodology.

Haunter’s initial brand rationale came from its parent brand, Achievement Hunter. Elements paid homage to AH including its green color scheme, a circular mark, and stars present in the badge treatment of the full lock-up.

During its development stage “Haunter” was plural. The lock-up concepts below are from that time. The pentagram/devil net shapes that replaced the “A” and the ghost that formed a star were some personal favorite ideas since they paid homage to Achievement Hunter’s star logo.
We went through a variety of ghost styles before arriving at our final solution, a blend of Casper The Friendly Ghost, Oogie Boogie, and Ghostbusters.
