MIKES ARCADE RENTALS
Vintage video arcade games, need I say more? Had the pleasure of creating video game advertisements for Mikes Arcade Rentals. While creating these ideas and concepts, the nostalgic feelings of playing video games with my siblings got brought back to life. My favorite consoles were Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo. We would also visit pizza parlors and arcades where they had the arcade style games and I always thought they were fun to play! As a family, we watched The Simpsons all the time. I kept thinking about the introduction to the show and how the advertisement definitely needed clouds and chalkboard displayed with a neat blurb. Marge needed blue hair, yellow tinted skin and a neck piece. NBA Jam reminded me of my late brother and his love of basketball and obsession with The Chicago Bulls dream team staring Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen. PacMan was also a fun game to play and a lot of diners and arcades had PacMan. I love the color concepts and simplicities of the game. Needless to say, I really enjoyed myself during this project. It was nice being able to incorporate ideas from my fashion and advertisement courses as well. Special shout out to my softball childhood friend Laiza for coming through with the beats for the videos and for creating a beautiful jingle. It was truly a group project.
