Test Patterns Are Everywhere (in the Industry)

As a follow-up to yesterday’s post on the use of test patterns as a graphical element, many people reminded me on Twitter that it’s still very much in use in the industry (video and TV production) or film school, and so a lot of people still deal with these quite regularly, so it’s not that far fetched to still be in use as a graphical association with the medium. I guess we should treat it the same way a film reel is still often used to represent anything that relates to movies.

I haven’t linked to any in a while, but Ian Lynam continues to post his series of red, white, and black patterns based on Japanese graphic design of the 50s over at Neojaponisme, with the latest pictured above.
