Special Effects Posters Tap into Booming Enthusiasm for Video Games
For proof of the timeless appeal of the poster, you don’t have to look any further than the burgeoning audience for video games.
In a worldwide market expected to hit $160 billion in revenues this year, the enthusiasm for gaming has spilled over into the analog world, with a thriving market for posters celebrating popular characters and adventures.
How do you create a poster cool enough for fans of an experience that is anything but wall art? You make wall art that is anything but ordinary. At H&H Graphics, we specialize in the combination of state-of-the-art multisensory print products with the timeless artistry of screen printing.
When the manufacturer of a line of beautifully rendered gaming posters went looking for a way to incorporate special effects into a limited-edition poster series, the project landed on our doorstep.
With special effects that include glow-in-the-dark, raised gloss and glitter, H&H helped the client create extraordinary posters that, like the video games they celebrate, create an engaging multisensory experience.
Special Effects for Posters that Create an Experience
Like video games, the market for posters spans a wide range of ages and interests and unlimited subject matter. Also like video games, posters have popped up as a source of pandemic relief as homebound adventurers have popularized scratch-off posters as a way of celebrating places traveled, wines tasted or even yoga poses mastered. It’s an audience that has always been there – posters have a long history as art, advertising and collectibles – but reaching them today requires standing out in a crowded field. That’s the real superpower behind multisensory special effects.
The vivid graphics and special effects used in modern video games set a high bar, but at H&H Graphics our special effects for posters can dazzle even the gaming audience. Our work with Pixel Empire Limited was featured by YouTuber Vsauce3, who has nearly 4 million subscribers to his channel.
