René Vincent (1879–1936) was a French illustrator who worked in an Art Deco style and became famous for his poster designs. He created advertisements for Bugatti, Peugeot, Michelin, and Shell Oil Company. His most recognizable work is the 1925 Porto Ramos Pinto poster. He was also known for his fashion illustrations and contributed heavily to La Vie Parisienne and Fantasio. Occasionally he went by the pseudonym Rageot. Vincent was one of the first French citizen to have a driver's license and was also one of the first Parisians to have a garage built onto his house.
