May 68 Visualized

I came across a book of posters from the May ’68 French student uprising. The designs are very simple and effective, as well as easily reproducible. I wonder if the artists ended up as ad men when they eventually joined the establishment.

“Keep up the fight – capitalism is sinking”

“The boss needs you – you don’t need him” (Notice that it isn’t clear that the worker gets the money in the second frame either.)
