Inspiration: Mid century designers

Olle Eksell

Alvin Lustig
Love the little flecky lines and amoebish bodies. (Similar to Alexander Girard)

Alvin Lustig
Love how simply the bridge is represented
It almost looks like it was torn out of paper

Paul Rand
Just gorgeous.
Love the very simple ink bottle contrasted with the elaborate stamp
(Rand was all about contrast)

I'm working on a book cover tonight. Am trying to keep it very minimal. When warming up I often go through some my favourites for inspiration. They include many mid century graphic designers: Paul Rand, Alvin Lustig, Alex Steinweiss and Olle Eksell.
