This 1950's motivational poster was produced as part of the THINKAMERICAN Campaign. The campaign was created to encourage mental speed, agility, and preparedness. The tone, typography, and bright, graphic, quality enforce the message. This series urges diligence, punctuality, reliability, and awareness. The message of the poster, almost 70 years later, has an entirely different connotation.
Chester Raymond Miller, born in the late 1880s, was called C.R. Miller before and during World War II. After the War, he began to go by the name Chet Miller. Although not much is known about the artist, his work is highly recognizable. He was one of the most prolific, yet unknown poster artists of the 1940s. Miller was not known to be an ad-man, nor a self-promoter, but he was an Art Director for Kelly-Read, an ad agency. Miller created numerous World War II propaganda posters as well as multiple posters for the Mathers Work Incentive series. His style was bold, primary, and flat.
