After the massive strikes on May 13, the "Atelier Populaire" designed posters for many of the trade unions. Before printing, each design was reviewed by a committee of students and judged for its effectiveness. The Mai '68 posters revitalized the almost forgotten revolutionary tradition of the poster. These posters effectively influenced and made people aware; they spurred conversation and stopped people in their tracks. In their graphic simplicity, these posters reflect the fusion of creativity and political activism and document an important historical moment.
