If the Empire is looking for a way to recruit, they should look at these Star Wars pin-up posters.

One common method of propaganda uses images of beautiful men and women to make people think that if they follow a certain ideology, they too will be happy or successful. In that sense, these are brilliant.
Feng Zhu is a concept artist who's worked on Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (2005) and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009). He drew "Imperial Recruitment" posters for the trade paperback Star Wars Visionaries. They remind me a lot of the WWII posters.
