Erik Nitsche

Clearly we’re fans of Erik Nitsche as we’ve posted a number of times about his work in the past. These three pieces are some of my favorites. The first and second were annual reports completed in 1955 and 1959; the third is a cover that was designed in 1956.

It’s really a shame the Flickr stream that held Nitsche’s work is now down. These images were found here.

The first time I saw the work of Erik Nitsche, It really changed my Ideas about design. I did a design job for General Dynamics and it was supposed to reflect the look Nitsche crafted for them. As a result I got to see some of the original giant prints that were done for trade shows of the day and various others works by Nitche. I’m a huge unabashed fan of his work.

Found one of his classical album designs for $5 recently. definitely worth putting on your list of things to look for at record stores/resale shops.
