Pair poster : When one design is made up of two posters, we call this a pair poster. In the 1940s, London Transport's Publicity officer, Harold F Hutchison, standardised the format so that one half presented text and the other displayed an image. Pair posters were used on prime sites such as Underground station entrances.
