This was one of my favorite projects at Crispin Porter + Bogusky. The second design I did for the site was the one we ended up going live with. When it came to the art card for Common’s interview, it only took a few rounds to get exactly what we wanted. The photo shoot hardly needed any retouching. Basically a dream project.
One of the things that helped was having a small core team. I worked with Jason Marks who was the ACD on the project and I had plenty of room to have fun with design. I’m really into the nostalgic style so this was a perfect fit for me. I’d rather play an n64 or super NES any day than a tricked out larger than life game.
