  • Atari 2600 Plus Poster Design
    Atari 2600 Plus Poster DesignHere is the poster I have designed for Plaion and PosterSpy for the launch of the Atari 2600 plus, a games console paying homage to the original 2600 with its wood grain finish and the ability to run both 2600 and 7800 games while being able to connect it up to modern tvs. For the design I thought I'd make it one big celebration showing elements and pixel versions of popular Atari games as if it was an explosion of fun coming directly from the games console itself.
