Here’s a piece of graphic design history: a corporate design sample of a state-owned supermarket from the 80’s, during the communist era, in Timisoara . It is a wrapping paper containing the corporate design elements of the brand. Bega was a brand of a great supermarket during the communist era, one from just a few from Timisoara.
You can distinguish the brand mark and a custom-made pattern extracted from the morphology of the logo.
“Pretty neat work, for a commie print!” some might say. Nevertheless, during those times, there were a lot of brilliantly designed things, even if the visual spectrum was limited to propaganda and state-owned business, in all the countries behind the Iron Curtain.
Stylistically speaking it reminds me of vintage Polish Graphic Design. Anyway, graphic-design was done strictly by professional graphic designers with enough creative flair, to surpass their logistic limitations and of course, the political and social censorship.
