Q.E. 2: 1969 - "For Once in Your Life, Live!" agency poster

Product Description

Cunard Line: One of the most distinctive and memorable QE2 agency posters - the 1980 "For Once in Your Life, Live!"

The graphic artist is William A. Sloan, an American who was just starting off in the business when he was given the opportunity to create this imaginative advertising campaign. The design was used on brochures, fliers, and this iconic poster which measures 24" by 36". If you follow Sloan's career you can see his imagination move in many directions, from stark black and white photography to retro. His "Cocktail Lounge" series of limited edition prints mixes art deco with martinis. It's a great combo! Here's the artist's "elevator" description of his work: "I enjoy exploring and extending brand options and possibilities, creating a strong image and memorable first impression."

This Cunard campaign certainly embodies that philosophy. Cunard used Sloan's work for several years, even prominently displaying his signature on the cover of the 1982 transatlantic brochure. But after a few years they lapsed into "ye olde English" and abandoned any modern vibe. 

The agency poster is mounted and framed in acrylic.  There is small crack in the upper right corner.

Very good condition.
