These are the designs for an exhibition on Chiptune – music created from old video game consoles – and its visual culture. The design uses deconstructed bitmap typography, glitched art I’ve created for the project by altering jpeg images, and processed music (by using a spectogram to turn music into images). This results in each poster literally containing the music and art of the exhibition, with each one individually based on art, music or video. The booklet will be sold at the event and uses the glitched art and spectogram images to help explain the history of Chiptune.
The whole design can be traced back to the pixel: square grids, square images and square format.
