George Giusti & the pre LOGO as a systematic approach of the extension of corporate identities into multinational organizations

George Giusti's major achievement was the design of Magazine Covers. See how he mixes a diagrammatic language of information graphics with an iconography of recognizable objects.

He uses colored inks in his airbrush, spraying them over the tempera.
