Whatever your feelings are about Big Blue – does anyone have feelings about IBM these days? — if you love design, you will flip out over Sue Murphy’s Good Design is Good Business site, a repository of the most eye-popping art created for the company spanning the 1960s to the present.
Some works are readily identifiable corporate productions, while others are simply gorgeous abstract art. All posters are high-resolution and suitable for printing.
A self described “design nerd,” Murphy is currently the art director at the ad agency Ogilvy & Mather for the IBM account. “This is a little spot where I’m saving some beautiful IBM work I come across in the form of hi-res posters,” she says in her blog.
Head on over to view the collection as thumbnails. As you mouse over each one, a description of the campaign it was used for pops up. You’ll find classic works by Paul Rand, creations by Carl DeTorres, a colorful series of icons from IBM’s 2009 Smarter Planet campaign and more.
The collection also includes some cool recent works, derived from the aesthetic of the older ones.
