Leonard Cusden was ‘engaged during the war in the design of propaganda posters and as Art Advisor to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents’ (ROSPA), and post war on designing accident prevention posters. He worked with H.G. Winbolt, producing sixty to seventy posters a year for ROSPA, for distribution to factories. Designs tended to originate as ‘mind pictures or actual happenings’ rather than an illustrated thought. He also hired other artists for poster design, and worked with Tom Eckersley
