The Amazing World of Gumball Guidelines
To give your work the best chance of being licensed, take some time to read the brand guidelines. There are a few things to avoid and some details to keep in mind. We’ve highlighted some key guidelines below but make sure you’ve checked all the details before you start creating. Be fun, creative, and original with your fan art. Would the Awesome Store sell it?
- Watch episodes of The Amazing World of Gumball to get inspiration!
- Try out various art styles, there’s no shortage of Gumball mixed media to choose from.
- Leave the logo as-is if you’re incorporating it into your design. Altered logos will unfortunately not be approved. Download the logo here.
- Be sure to add ™ to the show name if you’re including it in your design.
- Don’t use any 3rd party content or ideas, including mash-ups of The Amazing World of Gumball with other properties.

Design Inspiration and Resources
Creativity is limitless in the world of The Amazing World of Gumball. Each of the characters are designed, filmed, and animated using different techniques and styles. In lieu of format uniformity, Gumball is a beautiful multimedia melting pot.
They use traditional animation, puppetry, CGI, stop motion, flash animation, and live action. Yeah, all in one TV show! It’s as fascinating and confusing as that time the fabric of the universe was ripped open by MYBUTT. Check out the links below for more inspiration.
