Savignac Raymond

Year working: 1907 -2002

Extremely well known French poster designer responsible for many iconic images. Best known for his motoring image for Dunlop of a car and driver with four wheels but no bodywork. I assumed this was commissioned by Dunlop France but because of the novelty of the image was also used in the UK. Richard Roberts has also shown me a BP Petrol advertisement, so it could be possible that Savignac may have lived or worked in the UK. Unlikely, as I guess such UK commisions were by briefs sent by post. However for completeness he has been included.
