Jet exhibition poster, Robin Day, 1946

Robin’s talents as a graphic designer are evident in this poster for an exhibition about jet propulsion for the Ministry of Supply. The dynamic imagery conveys the excitement about this pioneering aeronautical technology; Robin also co-designed the exhibition with Peter Moro.
