Advertising Art 1969

Another great cover from Gebrauchsgraphik International Advertising Art! This particular issue from june 1970 featured The Best Swiss Poster Designs of 1969, Design Collaborative Montreal Limited-Industrial Art by Rolf Harder and Ernst Roch, Paris Fashions Illustrated by Hans Rudolf Herz, New Product Make-Ups on the American Market, Genesis and Function of Visual communication and also a report on Industrial Art from Vienna. I've searched every page of the magazine but much to my dismay the cover illustration seems to be uncredited, so the identity of the artist remains a mystery until I do some further sleuthing, which kinda leaves me currently emulating the demeanor of subject matter in question! I'm presuming that this particular illustration belongs to either the Industrial Art from Vienna or Best Swiss Poster category,  the fact that it made the cover may suggest that it was the winning entry in the latter, although this is not always the case with Gebrauchsgraphik covers of this kindI've also included two more of the Swiss poster designs from this issue which I previously featured on the blog a couple of years ago, they're the best of the 30 finalists in my opinion.

                                       Meat Cannery advert, illustrated by Donald Brun, 1969.
