Simply gorgeous graphic design work from Atelier David Smith.
There is a really nice collection of Saul Bass posters here from the 1950′s to the 1980s. I am familiar with most of his older work as that is what they teach you about in design school so it was nice to see some of his later work which is really impressive and still timeless. I always wonder when looking at this older work what techniques they used to create their imagery. I know most of it is photographic but I wonder what was used to generate the graphics in the AT&T poster above. Regardless all of it is timeless and artistic work.
After WWII several Latvian writers were relocated to different corners of the world. Some settled in Great Britain, USA and Canada. They went on to begin their own publications and a new generation of writers emerged. A magazine that surfaced as a result of this new generation was Jauna Gaita (the new course). The covers of Juana Gaita during the 50s through the 70s captured the spirit of this era. Although many of these publications are no longer in print, Jauna Gaita still is.
You can now see 50 covers of Jauna Gaita at their official website.
This seriously is one of the most exciting sources of inspiration I have discovered in the past year. The covers are just gorgeous, every single one of them. I would love to have a huge series of these to hang at home. Absolutely stunning.
A huge thank you to Grain Edit for uncovering these timeless works of graphic design.
