Erik Nitsche

I recently came across some awesome graphic work by Swiss graphic designer Erik Nitsche. In the 1950's and 60's Nitsche was art director for General Dynamics, a U.S. based defense contractor, and created lots of work for them including their branding, advertising, books and posters.
His work is very Bauhaus inspired, and makes use of bold geometric forms and strong colour. During the cold war his designs often included aircraft, rockets, satellite's and submarines, and many often depicted space and space exploration, so these have all been interesting to look at for me as part of my research for my Lunar space project. Check out some of his work below, and some book photos courtesy of grain edit. Enjoy.
