Comparison to 20th century Design movements

The main aesthetic in my project is that of an old arcade. It contains a lot of bright and over saturated colors, flashing lights, and a lot of graphics. This shares a lot in common with the aesthetic of Pop, mainly connecting with comic books. Comic characters were even the subject of some arcade games.

If these machines were in the style of art deco, they would probably have some kind of repeating geometric pattern. Also they would probably be hand made out of some kind of wood. The color scheme would also be more muted and not as vibrant.

Thinking about a streamlined arcade machine, it would be thinner and more rounded out. There wouldn’t be any sharp edges on the machine at all, having some kind of flow to it. The outer shell would most likely have a shiny metallic finish too it.
