Best Case Mod Ever

September 24, 2009

I liked my Atari7800, then my PS1 and now my Xbox360, but I really only used them one at a time and replaced it with a new one.

Some guy who appears to be loving Star Wars and his retro gaming consoles thought it would be best to throw it all together.

So he took an R2D2 cooler and turned it into a retro gaming machine!  Inside are eight consoles and a even a projector mounted in the head just like R2D2.

I think its awesome – especially the projector in the top.

Vintage Advertising Posters

February 26, 2008

Searching for design inspiration for a personal project, I found myself looking at some great collections of vintage posters on Flickr. This collection of art deco and retro style (please correct me if I’m wrong… I’m a producer not a designer!) European advertising posters is especially nice.
