Happy 30th Birthday Super Mario

Really Super Mario vs Really Super Wario

Growing up in the 80s, all of us here at Design Agency grew up with some kind of Nintendo console - whether it be a NES or an N64 - we've all played one.

Nintendo's iconic platformer Super Mario turned 30 years old on September 13, and our designer Rob Lafratta created a super illustration set showing how Super Mario and Super Wario would look if they really were Super.

Illustrations include Mario as Superman and Wario as his nemesis Lex Luthor, and Captain America with his rival Red Skull. As well as many others. Our favourite has to be Wonder Woman.

I had fun illustrating Mario and Wario, dressing them up as their iconic comic book rivals.

Rob designed a simple parallax website that featured the iconic costume changes as you scroll down the page. To take full advantage of the parallax effect, it is best viewed on a desktop. But still looks awesome on mobile and tablet.
