Hey gang! Who doesn't love a good evil movie corporation? What would the movie universe be without them, after all, they are what cause the major problems in almost every good sci-fi film.
Web-designer Mikko Vartio took the time to research several evil movie corporations and develop modern day representations of what their web-sites would look like if they were real. Here is what he had to say on his blog:
I like evil movie corporations, and for a long time I’ve wanted to do a case-study of their corporate imagery. I did some research and found out that these suckers does a fine match with real world evil corporations. The more I looked into it, the more it seemed as though these suckers make a fine match with some real-world evil corporations. I took my Adobe Fireworks, locked myself into bunker and reverse-engineered from scratch these six detailed lookalike-mashups of evil corporations.
Check out the evil corporation website designs below and let us know what you think! I've also added the artists note for each company and what other real life websites he compares them to.
OCP from RoboCop
OCP is the nasty corporation from Robocop, but Apple does much better job succeeding in the path of evilness. My vision of OCP site has some same resemblance of Apple’s site, but that is purely a coincidence.
Reckall from Total Recall
Paul Verhoeven directed Robocop, but he also directed another fine masterpiece called Total Recall. The evil company Rekall is specialized on screwing your brain with false memories, stuff like travelling into Mars. If there is evil travelling corporation, it is definitely RyanAir – the wicked airlines with their their cheap tactics and butt-ugly websites.
Weyland-Yutani from Alien
Weyland-Yutani should ring the bell from Alien-movies. I’ve been reading some news and looks like Toyota is doing fine job with their evil products and alien-technology.
Skynet from Terminator
Skynet has been sending robots from the future since good oldTerminator-days. Everybody thinks that Google is the new real-life Skynet, but I say that the stealthy search engine Bing from Microsoft is the genuine evil dopedealer.(eg. Skynet-logo with Google-colors is way too easy).
Cyberdyne from Terminator
When there is Skynet, there is also Cyberdyne. So, is Microsoft the Cyberdyne? Sure looks so.
Tyrell from Blade Runner
Bladerunner is classic movie, where Han Solo shoots robots. While the evil corporation Tyrell produces too realistic clones, our real world equivalent RealDoll (check mainpage, NSFW) does the same with evil sexdolls.
