In 1923, Charles Mather's printing company began selling subscriptions to corporations for an annual poster series to motivate and inspire workers. What began as a novel concept to use up excess capacity turned into a very popular series seen in hundreds of factories across the U.S. during the Twenties.

"Out in Front" is one of the best of the Mather Work Incentive posters. The goal of the series - motivating and educating a new class of American industrial workers - is evident in the poster's celebration of speed and drive. The boat is a Hickman C-Sled motorboat; the spirit is pure Roaring Twenties. The surging motorboats and displaced water, rendered in fields and swirls of flat color, represent a relatively rare influence of European-style Art Deco design on the American poster.
