Graphic Design of Mid-Century

January 7th, 2011






Graphic Design seems like it’s harder to categorize into mid-century modern so I’ve included a few pieces that are mid-century but not absolutely modern. I’m particularly fond of the lightbulb packaging. The color and typography of it is great—these images came Flickr.

    Loving mid-century week, Shelby, especially this post. Thought I’d give you a heads up on this ebay auction, looks like there might be a gem or two in there.
