Extra Ball Typography


The collection called "Extra Ball" was inspired by the Baimu's childhood in game centers and specifically in the Pinball machines , claiming the culture of classic games before the advent of video games. Baimu is a Graphic designer based in Barcelona. He loves typography and illustration and to mix them. He's been working as graphic designer since 2002.

Those machines with colored lights, the loud music and especially the feeling of success when you managed the ball into the "chrome rails" for that sailed smoothly and you multiplied the score or even gave you an extra ball, that feeling is what I wanted to convey with a volumetric numbers and turn consist of soft metal bends. I like to compare the creative process, the feeling you have when you are designing or illustrating something and it suddenly occurs to you a better and more powerful idea, an "extra ball" mental;-)
