Looking for a new illustration crush? Look no further than the lovely work of artist Lora Lamm. Born in Switzerland in 1928, Lamm was a key contributor to the Milanese design style coming out of Italy during the ’50s and ’60s. After studying at the School of Arts and Crafts in Zurich, Lamm moved to Milan to work as a graphic designer in 1953. Best known for her work for Pirelli Tires (example below), Lamm’s style stood out for her use of color, bold shapes, and overall playfulness. A pioneer among female designers and an inspirational artist to all, Lora Lamm’s bold graphic design work will surely inspire your next eye-catching work of art!

About Julie O.

A lover of all things vintage and vintage-inspired, Julie bought her first 1950’s frock in the fifth grade. Since then, Julie has become a self-described connoisseur of vintage and thrift shopping, which she shares on her blog, Orchid Grey. When she’s not scouring the racks for the perfect vintage skirt, this native New Englander can be found deftly navigating the slopes of a ski mountain, taking road-trips to the beach, and exploring new places with a vintage camera in her hand.
