Raymond Savignac (1907-2002), or just “Savignac”, was the premier poster artist of postwar France. Famous for the cheery colors and engaging humor of his images, he advertised everyday commodities ranging from aspirin to shampoo. Savignac never glorified luxury liners or trains, preferring to poke gentle fun at the first disposable razors, ballpoint pens as well as cars or fridges. His unique style, bold strokes and visual puns brought wit to the advertising industry. Savignac’s unforgettable work took over the billboards and magazines of France and lit up the Paris métro for decades.
