Patrick Duffy: crafting DICE’s distinctive branding

Without his efforts, the evolution of DICE wouldn’t be the same.

Aside from corporate leadership, Duffy’s impressive resume includes ventures like performing as a mime artist and DJ-ing on Radio One, even introducing a fanzine. These creative endeavors not only showcase his range of artistic abilities but also shed light upon his unconventional approach to design.

Having been raised in North East England, Duffy cultivated a unique world view and eccentricity that shines through his work. His earlier life taught him to use humor as a coping mechanism – a trait that significantly influenced his perspective and approach to design. Furthermore, he possesses the ability to view failure not as a setback, but as an opportunity for growth and development.

An example of his unconventional creativity is “The Fan,” DICE’s popular mascot, conceived during a routine train journey. A seemingly simple sketch evolved to be an icon cherished by DICE’s community. This mascot’s fame even moved a fan to have it immortalized as a tattoo. Such instances highlight Duffy’s unique creative techniques resulting in engaging content.

In his professional life, Duffy confesses he enjoys the process of “creating strangeness.” While it’s challenging to morph unique concepts into tangible items, he believes these are the challenges worth undertaking in the creative realm. After all, in a world clamoring for originality and innovation, why not embrace the strange?
