back to the future
I just found this awesome graphic design website called grain edit, which "focuses classic design work from 1950's - 1970's" as well as "contemporary designers that draw inspiration from that time period". Designs featured include children's books, vintage airline posters, record covers, limited edition stamps, illustrations... basically any design that belongs to that particular time period or has that kind of aesthetic to it. There are also interviews of current design companies/ illustrators along with their art work, which are equally intriguing.
*Hometown representative: 1975 Hong Kong stamps!
Feature designs come from all over the world, which is what makes the site so interesting.
Can you tell which designs are "vintage" and which ones are contemporary?
