Atari Rainbow Logo Art Brings Back Eighties Memories

 |  |  |  |  |  |  December 15, 2020


Back in the 1980s, I was a serious Atari kid. I had an Atari 2600, an Atari 800, an Atari 7800, an Atari Lynx, and an Atari 520ST along the way. I was even president of an Atari Users Group. So the iconic Atari “Fuji” logo is permanently embedded in my brain.

One of the more memorable versions of the Atari logo was the rainbow-colored one that was used to show off the graphical chops of Atari’s 8-bit computers, which trounced Apple and Commodore’s capabilities at the time.

Now 80s kids like me can reminisce about our youths with a replica of this classic logo to put on our desks or bookshelves. The colorful, gradient rainbow logo looks just like the original, though this one has smoother edges than the pixelated original, so clearly, this Atari has had a resolution upgrade. It also comes with a matching acrylic stand.

Thunktronix makes this logo and kinds of nifty retro goodies using back-painted, laser-cut Plexiglas. I can totally hear the music from that Atari 400/800 in-store demo program that started out with an animated version of the logo. You’re welcome…
