Soviet Anti Alcohol Posters

When we came across these Soviet propaganda posters we knew we had to share them. There's so much to be learnt from the way design is used when it comes to propaganda. While advertising and persuasive design is one thing, propaganda posters are by their very nature designed to be as persuasive and powerful as possible. Sadly we know very little about these in terms of exactly where they come from or in what era they were shown, but it is so exciting to see how design and illustration styles are used in other countries. We talk a lot about design language and it is very exciting to see how other countries and cultures use design and illustration in a way that makes sense to them.

On top of it all, some of these are just really beautiful posters as art pieces too! So powerful.
