Growing up, I played video games all the time. The first video games I remember playing were Super Mario Bros and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on the original NES. When I was a bit older, my parents finally let me play fighting games (after I begged incessantly). In middle school and high school, I entered the world of RPGs, and I pretty much never left.
The point is: I love video games, so designing the shirt for NEC's attendance at SpiceWorld was a blast!
The TurboGrafx-16 was NEC’s home gaming system that released back in 1987. SpiceWorld attendees are generally fans of all things tech, so we thought it would be fun to invoke a bit of nostalgia by building a theme around the game console. Our presentations and talks would include references and imagery from various games such as Fighting Street (the home version of the iconic Street Fighter) and Dragon Spirit. What's more is we were able to setup a fully functioning TurboGrafx-16 at our booth for visitors to play.
