A very cool brown/beige pop art advertisement for Olivetti.
Back in the 1960s Olivetti was mainly known in the public for its typewriters. This poster advertises the typewriter model "Valentine" a portable typewriter which is now design classic despite its lesser commercial success. The Valentine model has even been compared with today's Apple designs - if you like design, you should give yourself time to google the typewriter.
The poster design was made by legendary graphical designer Milton Glaser. He is the man behind "I Heart/love New York" and "the Brooklyn Brewery logo" but he also co-founded New York Magazine. He was also the first graphical designer to achieve National Medal of the Arts award from President Barack Obama in 2009.
Thanks a lot for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
