Atoms for Peace - Basic Forces - General Dynamics, 1956
Erik Nitsche was a promising young Swiss graphic designer who moved to the US in 1934, making his name designing hundreds of album covers for Decca. In 1955 he became the Art Director for General Dynamics, a leading multi-division technology firm most famous for building the first nuclear submarine. There, Nitsche created several spectacular posters promoting the conglomerate’s various disciplines. This poster was created for an International Conference on the Peaceful Uses of Atomic Energy in Geneva. It is a mysterious and surrealistic creation about the Company's research into the basic forces that govern the universe such as gravity and magnetism.. It combines a wave pattern below with constellations and a giant eye (or sun or egg). A remarkably creative design.
