When initially discussing the use of propaganda posters in our piece, as well as the style of the piece in general, we were always more focused on a black, white and red colour scheme. These colours were typically associated with darkness and threat (red as an offensive colour).
I therefore also wanted to look up standard propaganda posters in order to inspire the ones we would create and notice any particular trends (see posters above).
When evaluating most propaganda posters, they all seem to use at least a touch of red, and aside from this the major colour scheme revolves around the black and white/browns and some blues.
