Once Appon a Time is a joyously colourful retro brand & app project by Luli Kibudi, that certainly deserves a bit of your time.

Although the Behance Project page is somewhat sparse of information, it obviously appears that Luli Kibudi has reimagined certain famous brands and apps with their retro incarnations.

The only note by Luli Kibudi I can see on the project page is the credit for using stock images, and using Photoshop to create the digital graphics.

So…

Taking Spotify, and turning it into a Music Cassette; taking WhatsApp and turning it into a Rotary Phone, and my favourite, taking Netflix and turning it into a Video Cassette.

LinkedIn does seem to capture the essence of the platform with a classified Job Listing newspaper.

Also looking really cute is the Gmail app, as a paper envelope.

They all work really rather well actually, and kudos to Luli Kibudi for putting the effort in to reimagining these well known brands.
