December 3, 2014 Playstation turned 20. To celebrate, Pictogram worked with Sony Computer Entertainment and its contracted creative agency to design a commemorative iOS application chronicling 20 years of games, consoles and players from the revolutionary first Playstation to the current Playstation 4 and Playstation Vita.
After various concepts, a visual theme was conceived for the application that was derived from the signature colors of the classic Playstation branding. We tastefully applied these colors as accent colors and navigational aids between the sections that let users browse classic Playstation gaming titles, view the history of the Playstation brand and more.
Icon and user interface design were carefully balanced between the Playstation brand and typography and the current styling of Apple’s iOS 8, creating a native experience without compromising on delivering a custom-designed application with a true modern Playstation look and feel.
