Designer. Born Abraham Gamse in Whitechapel. In World War II, he was approached by the War Office to produce a recruitment poster, and became an official war artist, designing many more posters. After the war, he freelanced for a number of companies, designing postage stamps, jackets for Penguin Books and probably, most memorably, the emblem for the 1951 Festival of Britain.

Games was a skilled and witty graphic artist whose name crops up all through this period. Basically he drew the '50s for us.
