Flagg, was a magazine illustrator who created the well-known poster “I want you for the U.S. Army” in 1917 after the U.S. had declared war on Germany. It featured Uncle Sam with his finger straight at the viewer (definitely making you look around and pointing to yourself like me?), trying to get volunteers for the army. During WWI, he designed over 46 posters for the United States. According to the website Americans at War, war posters were used to inspire all citizens to help out with the war as well as evoke strong emotions to get everyone on board and further the national agenda. These posters were definitely very effective with their saturated colors, as well as the varying figures such as women and children; in an attempt to get everyone to help out.
