Sometimes you find 8bit references in places you don’t expect them. Yet not often they are as pleasantly surprising as this one. Perhaps it’s for, amongst others, the retro pixel trends that surfaced during the late 90ties, but it seems more and more apparent 8bit aesthetics has found its place in the mainstream style library.
Last year I stumbled upon this leader for a quiz by the Italian MTV. Motion designer Ced Pakusevskij aka Fullscream directed an awesome animation, done in October 2007. Where other professional agencies mostly fail at surprising us by implementing 8bit style references, this beautiful motion piece for Vale Tutto makes up for a lot.
One of his other works which feels strong in relation to this one is his work for Black Box. Check it out and more of his work at his website. Highly recommended.
