Retro Games Logo Finished!

29 Jan

I have been working on a logo for a new client of mine that sells retro/vintage games and we are both so happy with the final design! The client showed it to a group of online merchants to ask their opinions and the response was simply fantastic!

Here’s an example:

“Whoa – you sell video games? And here all this time I thought you sold shaving cream. Does that answer your question? Thumbs up.”

LOVE it!!!! If you’d like to see the whole design click the link below…. bonus points if you can come up with a name for the robot/mascot I created for him! 😉

Magisterrex Retro Video Games Logo Design by Francesca Cornell, madmatatus.com

It was great working with Dan and he pretty much gave me carte blanche… Video games… any games in general in fact are FUN.. and so a FUN, colorful design that reminds us all of our own inner child was the way to go! Another comment we got in fact said just that:

“What a fun logo. Makes me feel like a kid just looking at it. You’re right, she’s very talented.”

I wanted to use the new trend of retro/vintage artwork made to order for the new web 2.0 glossy look. The logo is going to make a great center piece for the header that I am now designing for his web store. If you’d like to have a look at his shop it’s here:

We’re redoing the whole store so it’ll be a HUGE change by the time we’re finished! I can’t wait…. this is what I was born to do… DESIGN! =)

Cheers!

    Dan’s logo looks GREAT, Francesca! Of course, mine is better!

    I remember the shaving cream comment on the board! Too funny!
