If you remember our post
about Hans Schleger
then you will hopefully recall his wonderful work for Mac Fisheries
. During the mid 50's he created most of the marketing and promotional items for the company.
The photomontage style he used for their poster campaigns still looks really fresh and I love how the logo is incorporated into the lobster and salmon posters.
I had no idea though just how huge Mac Fisheries were and that they not only sold fish, but also poultry, frozen and tinned foods. There's a great website
all about the company which includes a 'paraphernalia
' section with loads of Schleger designed items including these great poultry posters...
and weirdly, some round playing cards?!...
The site was compiled and is run by Colin French. It's a great resource and well worth a look. Thanks Colin for sharing all this information!Images copyright Mac Fisheries.
