The Beggarstaffs

Sir William Nicholson
  English (1872-1949)
James Pryde
  Scottish (1866-1941)

The Beggarstaffs (Sir William Nicholson, English, 1872-1949 & James Pryde, Scottish, 1866-1941) Under the pseudonym, they virtually created the modern poster, with clear outlines and large areas of flat colour. Perhaps the most influential graphic designers of all time.
