John McFaul drew on nostalgia to create a brand identity for Vintage TV. As the Brand Director and Creative Consultant for Vintage TV, he's created assets for print, web, and more that are fun and eye-catching. Recognizable icons such as Campbell's soup cans, Pacman, and cassette discs pull together to form playful typography that spells out Vintage TV.
Comments McFaul, "We needed a concept that would reflect the diversity and authenticity of the original artists that the channel will be broadcasting as these decades are stylistically quite different. The identity features a range of iconic items from each of the decades, which have obviously been used to spell the word 'vintage' for the channels logo."
