Video Games

Design by Supple Studio, in collaboration with Bitmap Books

For the inner child in all of us, Supple Studio and Bitmap Books have brought to life classic British Video Games for Royal Mail across stamps and products. There are lots of lovely details and hidden gems including Geoff Hurst’s 66 world cup goal and UV messages from the original gameplay. I was a pretty big Lemmings fan myself. As they said themselves ‘a complete dream job’.

Every year MARK tackle the visual identity for Manchester Literature Festival (MLF) – and every time they do something clever and appropriate. MLF is one of the biggest and best urban literature festivals in the UK; a showcase of the very best in contemporary writing from across the world. And this year (the 11th year, no mean feat in itself) MARK have surpassed themselves with a visual identity based around the visual distortions of book edges. A simple idea but one that has infinite legs.
