"Jumpy?" (Mather Work Incentive), 1929
Some of the quirkiest and most playful designs in the realm of poster art can be found in the Mather work incentive posters from the Roaring Twenties. Inspired by WWI production posters, the series aimed to instill American values in workers, many of them recent immigrants seeking employment at the burgeoning factories of the era.
This delightful poster uses humor to remind workers to stay cool in emergencies - perceived and real!
