A Unique View of Graphic Design Before the 1960’s

Hi guys, today we are going to travel back (not literally) going through the decades watching graphic design changing and evolving through time and events. I’m sure like me you’ll all enjoy this unique trip towards history and learn a lot about culture, politics, time, language, etc. All these things have played a very important role in the evolution of graphics as we know it today. So, today I’ve collected a few pieces of graphic advertisement before 1960’s. Just enjoy the sketch, thought, colors playing in these graphics and get inspirations for your own creative projects. A bit of history mixed with modern concept will portray a really unique view. Enjoy!
