I’ve got lots of things to say about all sorts of things, including the Goons, army life and Graphis, but no time to say them in. So all of those thoughts will have to wait for a day or two. Shall we throw our hats in the air instead?
I’ve mentioned this greetings telegram before, and now we’ve got round to buying one. It’s by James Mawtus Judd, who is still as ungoogleable as he was last time I tried to look.
He did two other poster designs, at least that I can find. They are both in the BPMA online archive, both also dating from 1962, the same as the telegram.
And that, my friends, is it. After that – or indeed before it – nothing at all. I imagine, given the date and the fact that he was clearly very good at design, that he then went off and worked in an advertising agency where he wasn’t allowed to sign things. Or made television commercials instead, perhaps. But if anyone knows differently I would love to hear the story.
