1950’s illustrator Jack Potter

Jack Potter was a 1950’s American illustrator and poster artist who became a teacher at the School of Visual Arts in New York.

His work was used on advertising posters for brands like Air France, Fuller Fabrics and most famously, Coca Cola.

I’ve only recently discovered his work and I love its vibrancy – and the simple moments he captures with an ever so slightly wonky clarity.

Check out two of his works below:



Potter died at his New York home in September 2002, aged 74.
