In the Propaganda section, you will find some posters to download and
print off for your graphic design students. Here are some of the

There was a real situation where bad design killed. In the Dusseldorf

couldn't find their way out to safety because the signs where so
poorly designed. Signs were confusing even when not under stress.
I will be adding a link to this on Incredible Art Resources.
