Design Description

Shout “Hull Yes!” for this ‘revolutionary’ design in the style of a 1930’s AgitProp poster. This form of propaganda art was developed in revolutionary Russia to deliver political messages but was quickly adapted by graphic artists in the West, its influences can still be seen in today’s advertising and contemporary art.
