The WPA Arts Project produced a LOT of posters in the 1930s and 40s and some of them were very striking in their design.
And then there’s the syphilis posters.
Seriously, there are so many syphilis posters.
Another thing I noticed about Portland was all the cool signage. Like, is there a higher concentration of graphic designers and artists there? Cus people seem to take color and fonts and things very seriously there! I also noticed this about house colors, but I didn’t want to take a ton of pics of private residences!
