MOTIVATIONAL POSTERS from an age that seemed to be more simple than ours. SLATE has an article by Rebecca Onion, “The Colorful Posters That Motivated Jazz-Age Workers To Strive” that is a delight. Do follow the link in the article to see a lot more of 'em.
But times change, and ninety years or so later, we arrive at de-motivational posters that appeal to those who are more objective about corporate realties. Apparently, DESPAIR, INC. was the first to create these, but the funny field has lots of other creators, as well, and a Google image-search can bring a smile to a cynic.
