Bernard Villemot

Villemot produced government and political posters during the war years. Beginning in the late '40s, he began designing commercial posters and became one of the most important Poster Graphic Designers after the Second World War.  

His work for Bally, Perrier, Air France and Orangina have a recognizable style. His posters are colourful, clever and cheerful at the same time and the advertising message is reduced to the max: posters with bold typography, a colorful and riche variety of synthetic forms, often charming and endourable female shapes.

Bernard Villemot had won every award in his field including the prestigious Martini Gold Medal and his posters were exhibited in retrospectives at the Musee de Arts Decoratifs in Paris in 1966 and at the Biblioteheque in Paris in 1981.
