Generally regarded as a sign of sloppiness and low quality [resolution] within the graphic industry, pixilated imagery appears to be pulling it’s weight as a respectable print motif these days. We’ve seen this trend jump from one surface to another in the world of surface design. In fact, it seems to be fairly well represented among fashion, interiors, fine art, and design categories one might mark as ‘other’. My jaw nearly hit the floor when I saw the Pixel Pumps from Mitsubai [pictured below].. I probably wouldn’t wear them much in real life, but I’m now considering planning my next Halloween costume solely around them.
