The Forgotten Defenders

A two page spread for a Zine project. The given themes were British, 50+ years old, and three and it had to be in black and white.

My design is based on the British attempt at a nuclear deterrent during the Cold War, which to my mind has largely been forgotten by today’s society. The men who flew these machines were tasked with defending our island nation, knowing if they were ever launched in anger, they probably wouldn’t survive, and there might not be anything for them to return to.
