In the 1950s and 1960s, Reindl painted and designed textiles and advertisements, particularly film posters. 

    The Miloš Reindl film posters feature a variety of techniques favored by the graphic artists of his time. From typical collages, to his bold paintings and masterful lines, Reindl contributed to the richness and diversity of Czechoslovak graphic art.
