The History of September in Design

September 11, 2011

Let's take a look at some historical highlights and lowlights of the month of September, rendered in graphic design. 11th September by dworis The new day of infamy, the artist makes a statement with this interesting and thought-provoking artwork commemorating the date when the United States was attacked by terrorists. World War II by julioferreira World War II began on September 1, 1939 when the Nazis invaded Poland. It ended on that same date six years later when Japan surrendered in Tokyo. This sketch was created for a newspaper and features some of the war's major players and events. The Lonely Viking by karanua On September 3, 1976, Viking II landed on Mars; and we got our first up-close view of the Red Planet. Unfortunately, no martians were found ... that we know of. Elvis by waldron1 September 9, 1956 changed the way we look at television forever when Elvis Presley made his hip-shaking debut on the Ed Sullivan Show. TV censorship was born. Purple Haze – Jimi Hendrix by pixelputa Jimi Hendrix died on September 18, 1970, in London at the age of 27. Often regarded as the greatest guitarist of all time, one can only wonder how music would sound today had he lived to share his talents longer. James Dean by Idiot-Monkey September 30, 1955, was the date 24-year-old James Dean met his untimely end when he died in an automobile accident along a California highway. Another example of a potential superstar dying too young.
