In this ongoing project, Graham Smith takes popular brand logos and turns them into retro-looking 8-bit versions.
As he explains:
I was fortunate to be a young teenager when the whole home computing revolution took hold. My first computer being a ZX81 (with 16k Rampack), and swiftly moving onto the Commodore 64, Amiga, Atari ST then Mac Classic.
The 8-bit era was a defining time in my life, and now I am all grown up and designing logos; taking a step back in time with modern brands sounds like fun. Looking forward to retro transformation of other popular brand logos.
Check out the other logos here.
