One of my political posters, Kinder, Gentler Carpet Bombing, is now on view in the exhibition “Drawn to Action: Posters from the AIGA Design Archives.” Culled from the AIGA Design Archives at the Denver Art Museum, the 33 posters in this exhibition “demonstrate the inventive techniques designers use to provoke action.”
Using an amended quote from George H.W. Bush’s nomination acceptance speech in 1988, this poster predates the first American invasion of Iraq in 1991. The “GTO” designation in the lower right-hand corner is an abbreviation for Graphic Terrorist Organization, a name suggested by Seattle designer Art Chantry.
This poster is also in the collection of the United States Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs Division.
