Hungarian artist PÃ¡l SzÃ¼cs was a graphic designer who studied in the 1920s at the Academy of Applied Arts in Budapest and a private school, which offered a more modern approach than the official schools. In the late 1930s he worked in several fields of graphic design. In 1940 he worked as a stage designer at a theatre in Budapest. SzÃ¼cs also designed posters, mainly for commercial products and events, and worked as an illustrator.
After 1945 SzÃ¼cs adopted a new modern poster style displaying propaganda of the new regime. The new style used compact symbols, monumental compositions and effective slogans. He continued to work in various fields during the late 1940s and the 1950s, on monumental decoration works, designs of many fairs and exhibitions, demonstrative boards, and designed posters.
