The U.S.S.R. was notorious for its omnipresent propaganda. The Bolshevik regime proved wonderfully adept at using the skills of talented graphic designers and writers to create vivid images and slogans aimed at ideologically motivating the masses to transform society. Their work permeated all aspects of life during the communist era, including art, industry, and science. As an item posted on the English Russia website illustrates, however, the state even invested a lot of artistic endeavor into such mundane areas as health and safety at the workplace.
