Propaganda posters are so cool

American WW2 Poster

No matter what the ideology, I love the passion put into propaganda posters.  I really like the mid-century period of propaganda design, and the clear winner in my books is… the Soviet Union!  Their posters are really design-forward.  Here are more examples of  posters from different WW2 participants.  You can really spot the differences in message and design among the countries… 

USSR: Great design, no smiles
