Reflections

Nothing says 80s like polished chrome

Another production for the 2006 BASIN development package originally named “Mark of Polish” but renamed “Reflections” to better suit the look.

It is inspired by the 1980s love for polished letters reflecting back the landscape adorning adverts, title screens and the side of monster trucks. I was pleasantly surprised this worked as well as it did given the size constraints and obvious lack of color available.

Best suited for titles, menus and lists with the right levels of contrast it can also work for full sentences and paragraphs. With a custom renderer you could position this text half way between vertical cells and color the top cyan and the bottom half yellow or green for the ultimate 80s chrome.
