Here is hairpin I made. I apologize for the blurriness, I’ll get better shots. I hope its enough for you to see the concepts I was thinking about.
There are several concepts I was thinking about when i designed it. I wanted it to represent the zombie world, use colors that represent Zombat and Aranya, and have a element of rotten love.
First it is based off the pod-shaped zombie world seen in the book. I was going for “world within a world feel” or a bit of ironic foreshadowing. I didn’t want it to look exactly like the zombie world, just an interpenetration. I also wanted it to be something that Aranya would want to pick up.
Second, the tunnels are blue and purple. They represent Zombat and Aranya. they intertwine together. The only pod that they both go to has a heart inside it. I wanted to reference love.
Finally, the heart is rotten, but it looks more like its melting. A blue light comes from the heart so it looks eerie but still lights the rest of the pods. I wanted to base the heart partially on the logo.
Thanks everyone! I hope this works, I’ve been having trouble getting my internet connection to work. ;_;
