New way of life should be imposed to public in a period that Ottoman Empire was collapsed and a uni-national republic was founded. Social values for that period were; to be self-reliant, to accept pioneering of the mind and science, to be skimpy, to work and study more, to produce quality, to shag what you produce. etc. Posters were the biggest helper at this point; because poster was the easiest way to reach everyone, everywhere. Ihap Hulusi was the first representative in Turkish poster art and advertising. His posters played the most important leading role in republic period. Ihap Hulusi made several works, each one in world standards, in a period when national production quality and amount was accepted as the basic target. He, not only became a part of the programme, but also helped the programme to succeed. (C) 2012 Published by Elsevier Ltd. Selection and/or peer review under responsibility of Prof. Ayse Cakir Ilhan
