Solid Gold Bomb

Solid Gold Bomb by James White

Even though I liked the idea, I was never overly happy with how the original Varo Broadcasting Corp turned out. I decided to work on it some more to see what I could pull together with the existing elements.

I wanted something very 70s with a soulful, Motown feel.

‘Solid Gold Bomb’ is also the title of a Scud: The Disposable Assassin graphic novel that came out in the 90s. I absolutely loved that title. The typeface I used was prevalent in 70s advertising, and a version also appears on Tarantino’s Jackie Brown movie poster.

This is 18″ x 24″ and will eventually land in the Signalnoise Store.

    Yeah the type face definitely reminds me of some of those VW or cleaning solution ads, that you see when going through newspaper archives or one of David Ogilvy’s books.

    What typeface is that?

    Chad, the typeface is called Bookman. It comes in a standard serif face, as well as the more swoopy version. I mixed the two versions for my piece.

    I dig it James and think it’s a more complete and striking piece than the original. The type at the bottom is perfect.
