The Saatchi & Saatchi poster beat the First World War recruitment ad

’Lord Kitchener wants you’ into second place, with CDP’s Benson & Hedges

’pyramids’ in third.



The top ten also included Guinness ’for strength’, The Economist

’management trainee’, Health Education Council ’pregnant man’, Araldite

’sticks’, Ministry of War ’careless talk ...’, Benetton ’baby’, and

Wonderbra ’Hello Boys’.



The top ten will feature in Campaign’s 100 Best Posters of the Century,

published by Profile Books on 17 November. You can order your own copy
