I Want You….To Put Away Your Smartphone: Propaganda Posters for the Modern Age

During the 1920s, 30s, and 40s, the use of “propaganda posters” were popular for encouraging good behavior — teaching safety, boosting worker morale, and rousing wartime sacrifice. I’ve always enjoyed the art and design of these posters, and decided to have Ted whip up a set of originals to address an area of behavior where modern society is often lacking: smartphone etiquette. Enjoy.

Did you enjoy these posters? Buy the complete set in the AoM Store. 

Posters illustrated and designed by Ted Slampyak
