vintage Wimbledon travel poster designed by Herry Perry for Underground Electric Railways Company Ltd in 1931

Well it’s finally happened – Andy Murray has broken the drought of 77 years. Wimbledon has seen the first British men’s champion since Fred Perry way back in 1936. To celebrate we’re sharing this vintage Wimbledon poster designed by Herry Perry (I wonder if she was any relation to Fred) in 1931 for Underground Electric Railways Company Ltd. Prints are available from the London Transport Museum.

Lotta Nieminen illustration for Hermès US shop window

Finland-born, New York-based graphic designer & art director Lotta Nieminen is a new discovery of ours. This is an illustration she did last year for window displays for luxury fashion brand Hermès. She’s also designed some fantastic packaging for coffee company Paulig.

She has a folk art inspired style that reminds us of Sanna Annukka, another Finnish-heritage designer we’ve featured in the past.

Tom Eckersley (1914-1997) was a Lancashire-born poster artist. His bold, graphic approach lent itself to the kind of work commissioned by big corporations such as Transport for London, National Savings Bank, Guinness and Gillette. His style transmitted messages that needed to be attention grabbing, immediate, memorable, informative and often quirky.

For a look at lots more of his work, visit the Visual Arts Data Service (VADS) and Rennart websites.
