Do you know the artist George Giusti?

His graphic designs are what caught my eye…

George Giusti

He designed covers for many major publications such as Time, Fortune and Holiday  and was also responsible for many advertising designs, illustrations and trademarks for major corporations.  He lived and worked in America for more than four decades and prior to that lived in Italy and Switzerland.

His futuristic designs were ahead of their time.  It was his intention to “build a bridge between fine art and art for commercial use.  He disdains the terms ‘fine’ and ‘commercial’ as defining a distinction which should not exist.  Art is art, he believes, whatever its purported use.” (excerpted from an interview in ADC here)

He was born in Milan, Italy, in 1908 and lived to be 82 years old.

His images reflect many of my personal interests…

Instead, today I make a concession to all my cat loving friends, because how cute is this…
