ABRAM GAMES (29 juillet 1914, 27 août 1996, Londres)


Le mardi 2 juin 2015, Naomi Games est venue parler de son père aux CM2. Abram Games fut le seul “Graphic Designer” officiel pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale en Grande Bretagne.

Certaines de ses affiches sont exposées à l’Imperial War Museum.

“Born the day after WW1 broke out, Abram Games was a child of immigrant Jewish parents living in the East End. He started his career as a freelance artist, producing posters for clients such as London Transport, before becoming an official war poster artist during World War II, designing 100 posters.

His iconic posters for campaigns such as ATS recruitment and wartime safety used simple and often stark images and clear typography to convey strong messages, and to create images which remain powerful today.

His post-war career was hugely successful – designing posters and emblems for an array of important British institutions, commercial companies and charities including the BBC and the Olympic Games, and the logo for the Festival of Britain. As well as graphics, Games designed objects including a coffee maker and a copying machine for the manufacturers Gestetner.

He was awarded the OBE in 1958 and appointed a Royal Designer for Industry in 1959.”
