Alvin Lustig

I’m a big fan of the work of mid-century designer Alvin Lustig, but it’s difficult to come across examples of his work. That’s why I was pleased to discover this ARTICLE by Lustig’s widow Elaine Lustig Cohen on “Alvin Lustig’s Top Ten Designs” with, you guessed it, ten examples of his work. Looking at his work, like the FORTUNE cover in the above article, it’s difficult not to conclude that animation designers were influenced by his work in the Fifties. Lustig also has a small, albeit significant, connection to the animation world. In the mid-Forties he designed two logos for United Productions of America including the studio’s famous primary-colored ovals with the studio letters – U.P.A. – inside of each.
