[ OBJECTIVE ]

This project led us through designing a single poster raising awareness about a specific issue that has been in the news and inviting people to attend a meeting to discuss this issue. This poster is actually a mock up of a poster that will appear in a public area, so it should attract people to pay more attention to the issue.

[ SOLUTION ]

The topic I chose is women’s rights. Women’s rights is still a big issue around the world. Yet, despite many successes in empowering women, numerous issues still exist in all areas of life, ranging from the cultural, political to the economic. For example, women often work more than men, yet are paid less; gender discrimination affects girls and women throughout their lifetime; and women and girls are often the ones that suffer the most poverty. Based on these facts, my concept is to tell women not to keep silent. They need to raise their voice to the world. Also, the public should not keep silent about this big issue, even though it’s happening around them every day. Silence is not an option for both women and the public. I created a strong graphic element to catch more people’s attention. The idea for the design came from the design process that evolved as I was self-critiquing.
