"The poster artist plays the role of the telegraphist: he doesn’t create the message, he transmits it. No one asks for his advice, we only ask that he makes a clear, powerful and precise communication.
A poster must carry in itself the solution to 3 problems: optical, graphic and poetic."
Cassandre in his “Notes” 1935
