Moscow 1980 Olympic poster

This poster smacked of Cold War willy-waving. We love it!

This poster was designed by Wladimir Arsentjev, and features two running tracks that combine to form a structure/flame, sitting on top of which is a red star, the emblem of the Soviet Union. Restricted colour, symmetry, and strong design all help make this an iconic poster. However, it wasn't part of any broader branding for the Moscow Games, with other posters looking distinctly amateurish in comparison.

The Creative Bloq team is made up of a group of design fans, and has changed and evolved since Creative Bloq began over a decade ago. The current website team consists of five people: Editor Kerrie Hughes (currently on maternity leave), Acting Editor Rosie Hilder, Deals Editor Beren Neale, Senior News Editor Daniel Piper, and Staff Writer Amelia Bamsey. The 3D World and ImagineFX magazine teams also pitch in, ensuring that content from 3D World and ImagineFX is represented on Creative Bloq.
