Jacques Auger

In my poster, I wanted to highlight the four freedoms promoted in Norman Rockwell’s four posters and stress the responsibility everyone has as a citizen to protect those rights by voting. The sans serif all-typography style is in homage to the propaganda posters of the Constructivist period of the early twentieth century.

Jacques Auger is a graphic designer who received his BFA from the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston and attended a year of graduate studies at the School of Design in Basel, Switzerland. Jacques Auger Design Associates (JADA) was located in Miami from 1982 until 2007...when it relocated to Santa Monica. Prior to establishing JADA, Auger worked for various advertising agencies, design studios, and companies in New York, Boston, and Miami. Auger was a founding board member of the Miami chapter of the American Institute of Graphic Arts and received its first AIGA Fellow Award in 2000. JADA is proud to have been the first design firm for The Wolfsonian, and was responsible for the award-winning design and production of the Journal of Decorative and Propaganda Arts for its first twenty-three issues, from 1986 to 1998.
