These Daft Punk merchandise ads do a great job of mimicking ads from the ’70s. The layouts, colours and type all evoke the decades’ graphic style.
Above, you can see one of their latest ads alongside a Coke ad from 1970. (The very same ad that Michael Bierut describes in the Helvetica film: “It’s the real thing. Period! Coke. Period! In Helvetica. Period! Any questions? Of course not. Drink Coke. Period! Simple.”)

Famicom “pulse line” cartridge design (1983-1984).
"In the early days of the Family Computer, Nintendo Co., Ltd. released games with the same label design. Up to that point, Nintendo seemed to think that the best marketing strategy for their games was to keep the labels consistent in design; later on they began producing more creative label designs that varied for each game and often featured characters or scenes from the game."

Here’s the set we built for Daft Punk’s Grammy performance tonight. This mid-century modern style set was designed by Daft Arts. Check out the old school audio equipment integrated into the set. Very cool. The recording booth is patterned after the “Mother” space craft control room from the movie Alien. The robots gold mirror mixing console actually worked and was played live.
