Videogame Minimalism

October 2, 2009


Having been inspired by this awesome minimalist Flickr set, I decided to knock up a similar set based on videogame characters. It’s a testament to the details of these character designs that they can be recognised when reduced to a few simple shapes and colours.

Flickr set here.

Edit: Due to some demand, I’ve put these up for sale as t-shirts and posters. Please follow these links to be taken to the various stores.

T-shirts are here.

Posters are here.

If you would like to buy these designs in another format, please drop me an email at infinitecontinues (at)
