This was done for a little zine project that Jack Richardson is working on. The rules were it had to be on the themes of British, 50+(age) and three. Other limits were black and white only and had to fit on A5.
As I had already done the Vulcan stuff I’ve posted earlier, I immediatly knew I wanted to do the V Bombers. I started work on a kind of mash-up infographics poster but I got bogged down with it and felt really limited by the lack of colour. So in the end I played to my strengths and did a layout composition. Once I got going it was a lot of fun to make, although I spent most of my weekend on it – it definately was a change from making websites for clients.
I tried to recreate the style of some of those military adverts from the 50s, and if there’s one part I particularly like, it’s the mix of spaced out caps, then tighter italics underneith under the weapons.
