Image of the Week: Commerce Bank-- Penny Arcade

Here is a screen shot from 2004. Powerhouse Animation created the animation for the "Penny Arcade" coin counter for Commerce Bank. These touch screen machines were in Commerce Bank branches all across the northeast. When one of us made it to New York we would try to get a picture of one, but apparently banks frown on taking pictures inside them :-(.

Here is our animation studio's very own Jason Williams with one of the machines. Jason lived and worked for Powerhouse from New York for 6 months in 2006.

Commerce is now TD Bank, and Powerhouse retooled the animation for the coin counters and for the TD Bank Wowzone.

Powerhouse seems to have a weird relationship with the phrase Penny Arcade, which we imagine does not come up that often in other people's lives.
