Horace Taylor, 

The Electric Railway Company,
London, 1926


This is British designer, Horace Taylor‘s poster (animated by Emma Neuberg) encouraging women in the suburbs to get into town via the London Underground and “buy British”!

Taking a closer look at the ladies’ hats (especially the one on the far right), and the designs on sale, they pre-date Nathalie du Pasquier’s postmodern designs for Memphis by fifty years. (Not to mention nu rave).


Here they have been rearranged to create a digital narrative with history and humour. The experiments continue..
