During the 1940s and 50s a new generation of designers transformed the way we looked at modern Britain. From fighting Hitler to selling Guinness, their extraordinary posters created an optimistic visual language that extended to national institutions like the General Post Office, London Transport and even The Times newspaper.

Join David Bownes, Director of Twentieth Century Posters and curator of London Transport Museum’s current 'Poster Girls' exhibition, as he explores the impact of émigré designers on British poster design during and after World War Two.

Doors: 6pm
