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

Posted By Brett & Kate McKay On January 8, 2013 @ 3:09 pm In A Man's Life,On Etiquette | 105 Comments

During the 1920s, 30s, and 40s, the use of “propaganda posters” were popular for encouraging good behavior — teaching safety, boosting worker morale [1], 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.  [14]

Posters illustrated and designed by Ted Slampyak [15]
