Insiders/Outsiders: Émigré Poster Designers
29 March 2019 - 27 June 2019
London Transport Museum
In the 1930s, numerous artists and designers fled Nazi Europe and settled in the UK. London Transport, under the direction of Chief Executive Frank Pick, commissioned many of the best of these émigré designers to produce some of the most distinctive posters on the network.
The Museum’s Poster Parade of twenty posters celebrates four decades of their work, featuring well-known designers such as Hans Schleger (Zero), Hans Unger and László Moholy-Nagy. It reflects their contribution to what is considered a golden age of poster design.
