A UC Berkeley business grad in love with words, design, and storytelling.

Today’s (half-pint) roundup: Australian graphic designer Robert Penney created these 5 awesome cartridge-style video game covers just for kicks.  I love the detail with the handwritten notes, the old price tags, and the worn corners.
"There’s a rather long history of lackluster video game tie-ins (1982’s E.T. for example) that were clearly rushed, sharing very little of the storyline, look and behaviour of their respective films.  This inspired a series of late ’70s and ’80s computer game boxes with modern themes, keeping only the bare minimum of information.  Enjoy."
