  1. Blimy! Whenever I look at things like this during war times, it sends shivers up and down my spine! Its so scary to think how manipulative and frightening advertisements were back then.
    Great post!

  2. Frightening. But from a design-related point of view, they’re very effective. Simple message delivered in an impressive way.
    Another interesting fact: When Steve Jobs came back to Apple, he put the “Loose Lips Can Sink Ships” poster on a wall. I guess you wouldn’t expect anything different from him 😛

  3. Beautiful and effective art.
    The message may seem heavy-handed to some people in our time, but they might not be able to grasp how serious World War II was. It was the epic conflict of history–60,000,000 dead and probably hundreds of millions wounded.
    Thanks for the display.
