Vintage designs for Olivetti

I am definitely digging these vibrant vintage designs that I found over at Ninonbooks, which were created for Olivetti typewriter and calculator ads in the 1950s and ’60s.

Aren’t they great? I kind of want to own every single one of those machines, please. More HERE.

The Illustrations of Naiad & Walter Einsel

Naiad and Walter Einsel‘s illustrations graced the pages of several prominent magazines during the 1950s and 60s. Whether in black and white or in vivid color, the designs never cease to entertain and leave you wanting more.

Just check out that cheddar ad (below). Cheese AND plaid AND awesome illustration?!? You’ll want more. Trust me.

Thanks to Today’s Inspiration blog for clueing me in about this beautiful husband-and-wife design team:
