Here is a bunch of images plucked from the growing library over at Vintage Future, a great link that my pal Shelby White fired over to me. A lot of the work I do is based on this strange pocket of researching the past’s interpretation of the future. Ever since we could dream we’ve been trying to design how we think the future may look, but inevitably we draw upon the now so the designs are rooted in the time they were created. Strange paradox.
I just love this stuff. The optimistic outlook, the bits of past technology, the desaturated color palette, the little rips and wrinkles. It all comes together in a perfect representation of what kids back in the 60s were looking at in magazines while dreaming of the future. Great stuff.
