Gaming Geek Designs from Nik!


We recently received some cool retro gaming posters from designer Nik (that's Nicola) and had a quick chat with her about her inspiration for all things geeky.

GYL- when did you start designing game related work?

Nik - I’ve always been a fan of gaming and game art, even back as far as the ZX Spectrum days, but I began designing my own game inspired designs last year when I set my Etsy store up.

GYL - what inspires you to design retro game posters and other merchandise?

Nik - I’ve been creating vector artwork since 2011 as a Freelance Graphic Designer, after work was slow one week I decided to start a small personal project, that developed into the Retro Consoles poster and badges which has grown into the collection on my Etsy store and market via my Instagram account

GYL - What games did you love growing up?

Nik- I’m a huge fan of Resident Evil on PS1, the original game, although clunky and long in places, it will always hold a special place in my heart. Outrun will forever be my favourite racing game, and Super Mario on the GameBoy.

GYL - What retro consoles do you still own?

I currently have a Nintendo GameBoy, Sega Gamegear, NES, PS1 and I’ve just bought myself a Sega Megadrive (which I’m really excited above).

GYL - Do you have any new games related designs coming up

Nik - Yes, ‘8-bit Turtles’ went live recently, available on mugs at my Etsy store:
