Joe Simpson Creates Promos Reminiscent Wartime Images

Propaganda posters were highly effective at rallying support, so Joe Simpson transplanted the visual style of wartime promos onto his own poster series highlighting modern video game favorites. Among the games featured in Simpson’s collection are Mass Effect 3, Left 4 Dead, Red Dead Redemption, Bioshock, Minecraft, Assassin’s Creed 3 and more.

Viewers will notice Joe Simpson’s use of minimalist graphics to convey each game title. The posters themselves have a rustic look and are colored patriotically, giving them an authentic vintage feel. Audiences may also spot a creased texture that Simpson applied to further emulate a worn out look.

Fans of these works should check out the rest of Joe Simpson’s deviantART portfolio, in which he renders minimalist posters for a myriad of films.
