Posters during World War I were
designed to instill in the people a positive outlook, a sense of patriotism and
confidence. They linked the war in trenches with the war at home. From a
practical point, they were used to encourage all Americans to help with the war
effort. The posters called upon every man, woman, and child to endure the
personal sacrifice and domestic adjustments to further the national agenda.
They encouraged rationing, conservation and sacrifice. In addition, the posters
were used for recruitment, productivity, and motivation as well as for
financing the war effort. The stark, colorful graphic designs elicited strong
emotions. The posters played to the fears, frustrations, and faith in freedoms
that lingered in people's minds during the war.
