  • Description:

A brochure for my arcade company Attract Mode.

  • Process (Programs, Tools, Skills):

I actually really enjoyed this project. I knew I wanted to continue with the theme that I’ve been working on for most of the semester and decided to do it for Attract Mode. I started off by searching for pictures that would display the kind of arcade atmosphere I was after. After that I had to find the perfect background. I’m also really fond of the fonts I used. They really evoke an old school feel. The toughest part was clipping the arcade cabinet in the bottom left corner.

  • Message:

I was trying to get across that no matter who you are or what kind of arcade experience you’re seeking, you could find it at Attract Mode.

  • Audience:

Arcade fans young and old. Seasoned vets and newcomers alike.

  • Top Thing Learned:

How to effectively clip an image. Tough stuff.

  • Color scheme and color names:

There are way too many colors going on here to nail it down to just a single color scheme.

  • Title Font Name & Category:

pokemonGB – decorative.

  • Copy Font Name & Category:

earthmomma – decoravtive.

  • Word Count:

284
