What makes for an impactful poster?

The thing that makes for a successful Hartfaserplatten im Zuschnitt?

Let's consider what exactly is perhaps the most popular poster in American history "I Want You" for U.S. Army featuring The government.

As to what made the campaign itself so successful, a good deal had to do with the fact the U.S. government was behind it. The federal government had the energy to put this poster in each and every post office and public building in the united states. It was also instituted throughout a time of war. Thus, there was already a well known mood which supported the sentiment of the poster - the concept that all Americans needed to step up and serve their country in a time of crisis.


So that is the background. However, leaving that aside, the thing that makes this poster so memorable?

First of all, it's the directness of the message: three words "I Want You". What really helps make the poster work is that the figure of The government is not at all menacing. Rather, he's colorfully dressed in red, white and blue. He is paternal-looking and he evokes sympathy and projects warmth. He appears to be though he could have been a president from a past era. Put simply, he is the embodiment of the country itself. And that, in a nutshell, is why that particular poster so effective and memorable.

So, then, what lessons are we able to learn from this poster that may be applied to any project?

Lesson One. The initial lesson is the fact that a poster will make an impact from the combination of words and imagery. It might be that the image is really strong that few words are needed. Actually, too many words may be distracting.

Lesson Two. Simplify and clarify. Look at your poster design. Whether it isn't obvious within three seconds what the message from the poster is, you may need to simplify it more. The average joe who looks at your poster will give it an appearance. If you want your message to encounter, or if you want the glance in becoming more, you'll need to make the image stronger or the words clearer.

Lesson Three. Location. In which you place your posters is important. Here, you will have to deal with local ordinances and owners of businesses who seems to be sympathetic for your message. You should consider the demographics of one's target audience, and you need to find out where they congregate. If they don't go where your posters are, your message is lost.

The creativity as well as the placement of your posters is going to be in your hands primarily.
