Lahco and Hamol Ultra Poster

Switzerland, 1954
51 x 35 in (130 x 89 cm)
ID #SWISSTUBE40-Z-01

This poster is a rare find: it's double-sided! Sometimes, printers would use some of their older works to test out new printing designs and preview how certain colors looked. So, on one side of the poster is an advertisement for the Swiss swimsuit company Lahco. The other side is for Hamol Ultra, a sunscreen brand. Both designs are by Marcus Campbell, a classically trained British artist, who was the art director of British and French advertising firms in the 50s and 60s. The bright swaths of color and vibrant portraiture on these posters demonstrate the Campbell flair. 

"La grande marque Suisse." (The great Swiss brand.) "Braunt und pflegt die haut." (Browns and cares for the skin.)
