For Signal 2016, I was tasked to come up with a cost-friendly giveaway item that encouraged attendees to visit all of the sponsor booths. Since it was a developer conference, I pitched buttons using a pixellated art style as an homage to 8-bit video games. A sci-fi theme was selected and I illustrated all the characters shown. Despite the limitations of using pixels, all of the characters were uniquely different and easily recognized.
A secondary task was to create 7ft signage (15 total) for all of the prize games to be played at the $Bash afterparty. Staying with the retro video game theme, I illustrated the art with the look and feel of Atari’s Asteroids.
