In the 1910's Jeges tried out many fields of graphic design. He created lot of book covers and illustrations that show the influence of Art Nouveau and folk art. Jeges resumed designing posters after 1925, and continued to work during the 1930's. He designed some colorful commercial and event posters. He continued to design posters occasionally until the end of the 1940's.
