I usually don't post too much design work on here outside of my own posters, but here is a poster design I put together for an upcoming gaming event happening in Seattle, WA. Arcade Armageddon...[link]
I was tasked with creating an identity for this years event. Even with the apocalyptic theme, I wanted to keep things simple. I played around with with this simple idea of shapes/colors to create something that I thought stood out and wasn't overbearing. I had to display both the games being held for the tournament and the artists performing for the concerts as well.
With the poster itself, I just wanted it to look like either old/classic video game packaging or similar to Famicom branding. I think it came together pretty well!
