1906-79

Having worked as a designer for various advertising agencies in the 1930s, Mount joined the Ministry of Information at the outbreak of the Second World War.

During 1939-45 Mount, working with designer Eileen Evans, produced many posters for campaigns varying from security and salvage to road safety and the renowned anti-VD campaign of 1943-44.

The Mount/Evans studio in the 1950s and 60s, became closely associated with the post-war Central Office of Information, producing characteristically neat and precise designs for a wide variety of government agencies. Mount also designed the poster for the British comedy film The Ladykillers (1955) starring Alec Guinness and Peter Sellers.
