"The first series of six posters established a tone for all future General Dynamics graphics, as well as a paradigm, of sorts, for how the marriage of science and engineering would be visualized by kindred companies. Indeed Nitsche's brand of artful futurism was copied by many others at the time and might be seen today as representative of the so-called 'Atomic Style' that emerged in the mid- to late-1950s" ( This is the Russian language poster from the Atoms for Peace series.
