Design: Vintage Motorcycle Posters

Another example of how perfect design effects us all. These vintage motorcycle posters are beautiful. Meant to be representitive of the companies product I don’t quite understand what Gilera was thinking (below), but who cares, it’s a great bit of advertising and design.

  1. The top poster is odd, but surreal I think. Plus, they got a woman’s boobs in the middle of the shot, which can’t harm, I’m sure. The Italian says ‘With eyes closed’.
