André François

André Francois was born André Farkas in what is now Romania. He made a name for himself as a children’s book illustrator in France and the USA. From the 1950s, he created illustrations for adult publications and became known for his advertising posters for companies such as Kodak, Citroën and Gilette. His designs for magazines such as The New Yorker, Graphics and Punch as well as his work for various newspapers brought him international recognition. François’ playful, sketchy and clever style is evident in this Kodak ad for colour photography.
