Imperial War Museum

Our new collaboration with Imperial War Museum takes inspiration from the iconic Spitfire plane. We have created striking designs using original photographs of dials taken inside the cockpit of a Mk1 Spitfire, while the typography of Squadron codes and aircraft information markings lend themselves to bold graphic repeat prints – using the colours in original Second World War posters for an authentic palette.

We have developed a fresh new way of using the wealth of archive imagery at our fingertips in creating abstract compositions from black and white wartime photography.

Highlighting the recognisable (and not-so recognisable) Spitfire details in the artwork, we have created unique and memorable designs that can be used on a number of products.
