Who is This Really For?
I picked this up off of Google+ a little while ago, and I completely flubbed properly crediting the image, so apologies in advance.
It's a great idea. Using the images of the video game to decorate a room in a house is a great example of combining nostalgia and design, retro art and graphics. But who is this really for? Modern kids, who have no concept of Mario Bros. and the games they built in the 1980s or is this really for the hipster parents?
Could it be for everyone, since vintage video games are easily accessible nowadays? I guess so. I really like the detail and spacing. Adding text or scores or some other visible marker would be great as well.
