On Command Posters
I like this.
But I cannot help but wonder about these, what I call “command posters” and why they seem to “speak to people” (literally) in the way that they do these days? Granted, they are usually inspirational or motivational in some way, shape or form and that is always good. Additionally words (or typographic posters) are immediate, which seems to be a good way of communicating in our fast-paced world.
Back in the day motivational slogans to the public were printed on banners and posters and used as a form of political propaganda, like the Keep Calm and Carry On poster. Today however you see them coming up more often, designed and distributed by all kinds of people. I am not being critical about that in any way. I actually like them, a lot. But, I am wondering about this trend.
