1970’s Russian Posters

Posted by Scott


Dave over at Grain Edit scored a book full of amazing 1970’s-era Russian posters. Incredible stuff, I really wish someone with access to these would reprint them. That first one with the bird has got to be my favorite.

Beautiful stuff. The third one down is almost like a flattened version of some of your designs, thinking specifically of the colour scheme and animal imagery. First post for me by the way, but I’ve been coming here every day to read your blog.

Plus I’ve sent everyone I know the link to your store. Hey its nearly christmas!

Keep up the great and inspirational work, for all our sakes!

I like the first best as well. The last one isn’t really my cup of tea but it strikes me this seemed to be made in 73. Which makes it incredible nonetheless.

that bird poster is ridiculous. i really love it when there are symmetrical elements to a design but the designer obviously cares enough about the details that they didn’t just take the wings, duplicate and mirror them.

I really like the last one, with its ’70s sci-fi kind of vibe. I love old sci-fi / futuristic art and design because it’s forward thinking and dated at the same time.
