A showcase of the best original modernist artwork we discovered on our travels through internet land. As with most great design the aesthetic qualities and design style of these pieces have been replicated and emulated over the last one hundred years, in everything from gig posters to magazine covers. The utopian ideals of Modernism might well be dead, but the aesthetic lives on. Featuring here, design pieces by Muller-Brockmann, Tschichold and Max Huber; stalwarts from the modernist era and modern day heroes for graphic designers across the land. Popular modernist styles included limited colour palette, usage of angles, sans serif typography and blocky areas containing strong bold colours.
Sites like www.swissted.com go to show modernism’s continuing stronghold on designers and artists working today. No one really reinvents the wheel; but you can definitely look it at and make a wheel pretty similar for a different vehicle; as Jim Jarmusch said “Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination.”
Beautiful Things from the modernist era. Modernism really is cool.
