Ehlers was a founding member of the Neue Vereinigung Munchener Plakatkunstler (the New Group of Munich Poster Artists). Employing progressive new typography, stylized graphics and photography, his style was the most modern of his colleagues. Among his major clients were the automotive giant B.M.W. and the men's clothing store Bamberger & Hertz. This atmospheric image adeptly conveys the "cold night, warm coat" slogan that the poster is promoting.
