scan0138Here is a site devoted to old school party flyers from the ’70’s and ’80’s.  Way back before many of you were born I am sure.  Way back before the computer, before Illustrator and Photoshop with its slick professional quality graphics in minutes. Back when pen and ink, rubilith, some letraset and an x-acto knife (or a razor if you were hardcore!) were the tools of the trade.

I love these posters for their crude visuals, and ‘snazzy’ effects! This one  even has a NIKE shoe – introduced just 10 years before.  Check out the site for lots more.
“Most of the Old School Party Flyers were Designed By Buddy Esquire and Phase 2. Phase 2 was a real big Aerosol Artist who wrote on allot of the NYC Trains who also did a majority of the Party Flyers back then.”
