Graphic Designer Gets Stamp of Approval

Abram Games (July 29, 1914 – August 27, 1996) was born the same year as Paul Rand and died the same year too. (August 15, 1914 – November 26, 1996). Now he is commemorated in a stamp issued by the Royal Mail.

Royal Mail celebrates a selection of remarkable individuals from the realms of sport, design, economics, heroism and the arts with the ‘Remarkable Lives’ stamp issue. Completing the issue is pioneering graphic designer Abram Games, whose work helped inform the nation about the importance of supporting the war effort. He created nearly 300 posters and went on to become the only official War Office Poster Artist. He was awarded an OBE in 1957.
