Can anyone remind me of a poster designer's name?

Female designer, worked with black and white photos overlayed with large red fields and Futura Bold type. Very Soviet and powerful. Saw a piece about her some years back (Kottke, maybe?) but didn't bookmark it and have been kicking myself ever since. Using up MeFi juice to ask now.

Kruger will definitely be the one, though there have been copycats..

And this may have been the piece you read: Designing Under the Influence by Michael Bierut.
