Low-Res Recreation Campaigns
These Pixelated Atari Ads Remind Gamers of the Company's Roots

By: Amelia Roblin (Superstar) Apr 4, 11

It’s sometimes hard to picture the primitive days of arcade games and computer graphics, but these pixelated Atari ads provide nostalgic snapshots of sports enhanced with 8-bit equipment.

This clever campaign was designed with the help of The Republik advertising agency of New Zealand, overlaying photos of a tennis player, a football player and a golf tee with low-resolution white images. One can easily make out the cyber symbolism of a racket, a pig skin and a dimpled ball while the message below the company logo reads “Since 1972.”

These pixelated Atari ads are fundamentally simple, yet communicate the passage of time and technological expertise, reaching out to the consumer in a way that brings them back to a simpler time.
