I have always had a fascination with advertising before the world of graphic arts relied heavily on digital technology. Art Nouveau brought out the best creations in poster design. The grand use of thick outlines, vibrant colors, and use of unique typography allowed people to see these posters from miles away and be drawn into the artwork and message. You can see some of these trends even today. This artist, Henri Meunier, created great works throughout his career that are bold and have a personality all their own.
