Call of Duty: Black Ops features Go Media Vector Art

Turquoise Flag-Tip

We’re all still pretty young here at Go Media. Heck, Go Media founder Bill Beachy is only in his thirties. So yea, it’s fair to say we’ve played plenty of Activision’s award-winning action game Call of Duty. That’s why we were excited to get the call from Activision saying they wanted to use our vector art in the latest installation of the series: Call of Duty: Black Ops.

Activision hand picked images from The Arsenal for use in the Playercard editor of Black Ops.   There are more than 480 images, but it’s not too hard (especially for long time fans of The Arsenal) to pick out the skulls, heraldry, or disgruntled suits that came from our library.

Check out the (admittedly lo-res) screenshots of the emblem creator below.  Images in the emblem editor can be colored, moved, rotated, resized, and overlapped to create unique playercards.

    I’m curious, if the vectors are royalty-free after purchase, did this require some alternative type of licensing or anything? Did Activision even NEED to contact you, or were they just being cool about it?

    • Adam

      Yes & yes – we worked out a fair license for this project.

    Wow that’s so awesome for you guys. I’ve been a fan for a while and have purchased a few sets of vectors. I’ve been playing BO since release and, sorry, didn’t realize they were yours. But now that I know I kind of feel connected some how. Congrats!

    That’s awesome guys! I was totally at the release party for this game in California at the Santa Monica Airport and saw my favorite band, Metallica play at the end :-)

    Sorry, I got off track. But seriously, that is awesome that you guys are so widely known and your work is in the most popular stuff. Kudos and great work!
