From the reference #34

Big numbers, bright colours and big arrows, what hasn't this 8mm colour film packaging got??

I think it's from the 60s' or maybe even the late 50's, but the colours and the design are so 80's. You can only just make it out on the pic, but all the 8's are overprinted and the design on the reverse is really quite modern and I'm loving the big arrow.

Holey moley, where do you find this stuff? Can’t believe it’s ‘60s design - they’re so ahead of themselves. xx

Didn’t 80s graphic design derive a lot of elements from 50s design anyway?
