In the city, it’s difficult to get information to a large quantity of people without a lot of resources. Of course, it helps if you’ve got an eye-catching poster to draw people’s attention. Poster art has been recognized since the late 19th century, when figures like Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and Jules Chret applied their considerable talents to advertising posters. Posters have also been used for political purposes, such as for U.S. Army recruitment in World Wars I and II, or in the Barack Obama “HOPE” poster. Many modern forms of poster art can be enjoyed by a wide variety of people, regardless of their original use.Echo ChernikChernik graduated from Pratt Institute with a BFA in Communication Design and Illustration.
