Design From The 70ies - Need Advice

Sat Jul 19, 2003 4:44 am

The surest sign that I'd do almost anything for money is that I agreed to design a webpage (plain HTML, no Flash) with the look and feel of the Seventies. To get this straight: I hate design from the seventies.

So if you are more into this (design of the seventies, not producing a webpage) and if you know some good webpages, furnitures or album cover arts I could look at, please fell free to post/mention them here.
I really do not wish to copy any of the webpages but need a booster for ideas.

Thanks a lot,

Wait, you're getting paid for this and want us to work for free? HA!

What do WE get? :-d

The payment is so poor, you'd feel sorry for me, make a donation AND provide some suggestions.

Check out the book Faserschmeichler, Fönfrisuren und die Ölkrise: Das Bilderbuch der siebziger Jahre, available from amazon.de or (probably) your local bookstore:

http://www.amazon.de/exec/obidos/ASIN/3205992016/ref=pd_bxgy_text_2/028-1602051-3397326

I have one about the '80s from the same series and there are plenty of design-related photos in it.

Here are two more German titles on the subject that I found:

P.S. A quick Google search also revealed this site:

There are more like it.

If you really want to cover all aspects of your topic, I found a more serious study of 1970s design from Taschen:

How mature...you know, not all priests molest boys. The small number that do are sick and should be punished severely though.

PHX-LJU,

Thank you; I tried a search at google, too and found some pages but none of
them attracted me.

Try your municipal library, especially if you have access to a good one in a nearby city.

My public library (90,000 live in my town) had a great book on sixties images. A couple of pages on TV shows, a couple on sweet wrappers, a couple on cars, a couple on fashion and so on. Just full of images with very little text.

If there was a book like that on the seventies available to you I'm sure you'd be made.
