Celebrating the history of video games
Game On 2.0 is an exhibition featuring the world’s largest selection of playable video games from the past 60 years alongside original artwork and memorabilia. We were commissioned by Centre for Life and Barbican to produce the graphical concept for the entire exhibition.
A graphical 8-bit pixel concept was created and used in monochrome throughout the exhibition so that the murals did not compete and become lost within all the colourful flickering screens. The graphics needed to complement the busy exhibition but not compete and the style established the murals in a context that audiences from across the gaming generations could understand, even allowing visitors to revel in different icons that related to their own unique memories of gaming.
