Man Ray Tube posters

posted in: Design | 0

Man Ray’s extraordinary designs for London Underground 1938. It’s a bit of a stretch to compare the Tube to a majestic ringed planet but it somehow works. The design, shapes and colour of the 3D logo and Saturn reflect the design aesthetics of early science fiction films in my opinion. Was Man Ray (born Emmanuel Radnitzky) influenced by them or the reverse?
