An Ode to Greg Martin

An Ode to Greg Martin

Yesterday I read that Greg Martin, the illustrator behind some of the most iconic video-game boxes ever made, has passed away. Greg was responsible for some of the most famous designs in gaming including Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog series characters and Namco's Pac-Man, in particular. Many Sonic the Hedgehog games released in America during the Sega Genesis and Game Gear era have Martin's cover art, including Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic CD, and Sonic Spinball, among others. This post is to pay a little homage to Greg, he was an inspiration to us all.

Fun with Barcodes by Steve Simpson

Fun with Barcodes by Steve Simpson

A barcode is an optical machine-readable representation of data relating to the object to which it is attached. That's Wikipedias definition and Steve Simpson, a illustrator from Dublin, Ireland makes sure that the representation is very accurate to the brand of the product by creating super cool illustrations with the barcodes. Barcodes grace almost every product we sell. Considering how much package real estate they command, why shouldn't they be more fun? Some tips from Steve Colours can be changed but requires good contrast for scanning readability. The number string is only there to help a human reader interpret the barcode; change the god damn font! Space should be left at either end so the scanner can recognise the beggining and end of the code. For readability; there should be a healthy sized horizontal strip of uninterupted code. Test it! Print it out and check it using a barcode reader app on your smart phone. For more information visit: http://www.stevesimpson.com/

Inspiration: Packaging Design

Some people really pay attention to it, some really don't notice it, but doesn't always go as the saying "you can judge the product by it's box" and sometimes we end up getting something because of the box and here are some really good samples of it.
