It was quite some time now since we released a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive skin, some of you might have been wondering what our designer Keiran ”Stop” Fuller have been up to. Find out in the interview below!
You created NiP’s first official skin ever, how did it feel?
It felt pretty great, being picked up by an organisation you’ve followed for some time is pretty special. It’s given my work great exposure as well as an opportunity to work alongside the players and staff from Ninjas in Pyjamas to make products I and hopefully the organisation can be proud of.
Have your requests for skins increased since you started making skins for NiP?
I’ve had some more work from within the organisation working on the twitch page, as well as working on the banners and other things for the new DotA team. Also I have had a few people come to me for twitch overlays for different games to.

How do you create your skins? What programs do you use? How do you create the design?
I use photoshop to make the skin and render the images to get an idea of what the skin will look like in game. However for all my art that goes into my designs I use illustrator for the outlines and some simple colouring.
We’ve heard that you have something in the scope at this moment can you tell us more about this?
Well if you continue to follow my workshop and the NiP Facebook book im sure you will see more projects to come!
