1964

Marget Larsen, Dean Swift Snuff packaging, 1964

One of my students recently asked me if this blog was all 1960s stuff. Absolutely not. I’m completely temporally promiscuous. That being said, the CA Annual from 1964, CA’64, is especially wonderful and filled with pieces not often published. Marget Larsen is an unsung hero of the design world, and her Dean Swift Snuff packaging is rich and beautiful. And finally, George Tscherny’s design for the Burlington Annual Report is concise, ordered, hopeful, and elegant. There is a light and witty example of fumetti (a style of making comics from photographs) done for ADLA (Art Director’s Club of Los Angeles now incorporated into AIGA Los Angeles) by Gollin, Bright, and Zolotow. First name references for those of you who didn't hang out with the LA designers in 1964 are: Robert Miles Runyon, Saul Bass, Keith Bright, Norman Gollin, Milt Zolotow, and Buddy Berke.
