French graphic designer-artist who worked with one arm as he lost his right arm in a tramway accident at age 18. His fondness for cubism drew him to the Art Déco. He made a name for himself in 1935 with the ‘’La cuisine Électrique’’ poster.

Carlu was named Commissioner of the Advertising Pavilion at the 1937 exhibition and of the French Pavilion in New York in 1939. When WW II broke out, he worked for the Office of War Information and for The Container Corporation of America. After the war he worked for Pan American Airways and then returned to France in 1952. He worked for Air-France, Perrier and Larousse.

Carlu married on 11 April 1927 and divorced on 20 December 1943. He died on 22 April 1997, Nogent sur Marne, France.
