A personal design project inspired by the 75th Victory in Europe Day Celebrations.

In the days leading up to the 75th VE Day celebrations taking place on the 8 of May 2020, I decided to get creative and come up with a retro styled poster that took inspiration from Max Huber and travel posters of the 1960s.

I had an idea where an aircraft, the iconic Supermarine Spitfire, swooped through the page leaving a trail of the Union Jack behind it. I wanted to create a dynamic poster that emphasised its sense of speed and I did this by creating a vertical swoop (as if the aircraft had done a sharp turn) which helped to accentuate its directional movement.

I then paired this with some suitably looking 50’s fonts that would help to create a strong graphic effect.
