Propaganda Poster Inspiration Examples

Today, we’re sharing propaganda posters, known to be used as “weapons on the walls,” during times of war. These posters were valuable tools when television and radio did not exist. They were also used to educate, at times manipulate and even motivate in wartime (for example, the well known, “We Can Do It!” wartime poster.)

We hope you find these posters inspiring as you create your own for our third design challenge, open to our Arsenal Army members. If you’d like to join us in all of the fun, please subscribe.

Now that tax money is rolling in (with any hope) we’ve got our eyes on some items that will make our lives as creatives a lot easier. (And more fun.) Here is a round-up of items we’re thinking of purchasing with our tax refunds this year.

What do you have your eye on? Let us know in the comments section.

An interactive sketchpad
There’s nothing better than a traditional sketchpad for getting ideas down and drawings out. But interactive sketchpads are pretty darn cool, in that they can transition your notes to files that you can open in PS or Illustrator in the blink of an eye. Try the: Bamboo Wacom Slate.

Tickets to Weapons of Mass Creation Fest
Weapons of Mass Creation Fest, the premier design, art and music conference in the Midwest, is back for its eighth year! Come to see the ultimate WMC Fest experience, as we’re going back to our roots and celebrating the ideals our grassroots festival was founded upon. There will be TED-X style talks, interactive workshops and panels on topics like battling burnout and how to practice understanding, music, meet-ups, food trucks and bowling, too! Learn all about WMC Fest 8 and buy tickets here. Starting at $85 for the entire weekend.

A new desk set-up
The most people spend the majority of their time is at their desks – well, other than in bed, of course. So, it’s worth it to spend a few bucks to make it comfortable. Try the: Jarvis Standing Desk.

A legit flash drive
I don’t know about you, but I have 17 flash drives floating around my desk, each one on its last leg. It’s about time I grew up and treated myself one that won’t let me down. I have my eye on the: SanDisk 128GB Extreme Pro USB 3.0 Flash Drive.

Laptop backpack
I attempted, with all my might, to make it down to Creative South this year, but was unable due to several flight cancellations here in Cleveland. While I waited, I was shopping for a new laptop backpack that would have gone really well with my outfit. I feel like I deserve to buy this Mancro bag for myself, even though I don’t have any future travel plans. I think it will cheer me up, though it won’t replace the incredible time I missed.

Subscription to Go Media’s Arsenal
We’d be remiss if we didn’t suggest that you join our Arsenal Army and instantly access our entire product library for only $15 per month,  including all of our mockup templates, vectors, textures, tutorials, business resources and more. Learn more here.

A fun new keyboard
Anyone else geek out about keyboards? This is a perfect opportunity to grab one that feels great underneath your fingertips, like this Logitech K380 Multi-Device Bluetooth Keyboard, that comes in several different colors and connects with up to three devices simultaneously.

A planner
Okay, I know I am a little late to the game on this, but I have just realized how badly I need a planner. I really miss having a to-do list to create, then check off. I found this pretty serious one by Erin Condren. Looks like I’m going on deep.

A donation to…(fill in the blank)
Whatever organization you feel needs help right now. Because the world needs it. Here are some ideas.
