Poster Series, Illustration, Social Responsibility, Print Design
The client is International Women’s Day.
The target audience includes young girls and boys between the ages of 10-16. The target is young people who are typically influenced by pop culture and the kind of visuals and messages provided to them on a daily basis via social media.
I illustrated influential women who can be looked at as positive role models for young people, particularly girls, that they may not come across on popular social media platforms. The poster series was created with the intent that girls would replace their perceived ideals of pop icons with these women who depict strength, diversity, courage, intelligence and perseverance. The style I chose to illustrate in was geometric and colourful. This style was meaningful to me in showing that every little piece may seem so small, but when put together, the whole is a great and powerful thing. It also shows that who was once broken can still have hope and that the greatest inspirations of our time often came from humble beginnings, tragedy and rejection. These failures only made them stronger. The outcome includes a series of 6 posters with portraits of influential women, their name, a quote and a short biography to be both educational, inspiring and beautiful.
