We hired Black Artist Ty Ferrell to create the original t-shirt design for us, inspired by his passion for social justice, NAACPs “We are ready to dieCampaign and according to the themes and motifs of decay. Ty was deeply moved by the feeling of a bold stance against the ongoing unnecessary loss of life, so he drew parallels between this defiant proclamation of wanting to live and surviving the zombie apocalypse.
This striking original artwork depicts a figure kneeling in peaceful protest. Behind him, raised fists form a shape reminiscent of the well-known State of Decay eagle logo. Below him is the motif of State of Expiry: Year One Survival Edition.
We are proud to support the Black Community and Team Xbox in celebrating Black History Month in this unique collaboration with Ty Ferrel and the NAACP. Find out more about the various Black Developer Support events throughout the month here on Xbox Wire.
