Happy Thanksgiving to Our American Friends and Family!

For a number of years in the 1980’s Reactor was the agency of record for Bata Canada. On a regular basis we created in-store point of sale materials for the 500 or so Bata Shoe stores across Canada. These are two Thanksgiving posters art directed by Louis Fishauf and illustrated by Bill Russell and Paula Munck.
