history of graphic design

i taught the History of Graphic Design for a
handful of years 
& have always loved the design of this poster...

created by Lester Beall 

reminded of it 
in the innocence
& by the movement of the lines

when placed with the bold graphic red and blue stripes,
Beall's poster was very modern for it's time here in america.
influenced by trends abroad in art & design at the time,
Bauhaus philosophies & Russian Constructivist elements are evident.
a wonderfully designed & an eye catching piece of propaganda 
for the government spending program
