SGI Posters / marketing

Unread postby Keyframe » Wed Mar 16, 2016 6:19 pm

As a wee lad in 90s I had a poster I got from SGI (in Europe) that had a big Onyx on it, a desk and a car. All CG. It was a calendar set in the far future. They exploited the neat thing that same years in the future corresponded with the exact same dates as the years in the 90s this poster was printed in.

It has since passed a lot of time and I don't have the poster anymore. Does anyone know the poster I'm talking about?

I had a bunch of other promo posters I got from SGI back then, but damnit I lost them all over time.

Not the one you're talking about I think, but I made a poster of this one:
