Posters

Human Trafficking is a deplorable social issue plaguing our world today. Unfortunately, it is a billion-dollar industry that is extremely challenging to stop. I have the heart to speak up for individuals that have been silenced. With this poster design, I used illustration to portray the idea that "anyone" can be trafficked, and that you may know "anyone". After contemplating a message that will grab the viewer's attention, I hand-lettered this statement: 

"The Chains of Modern Day Slavery are not made of metal, but of the extremely high demand that comes from us all."

 

I wanted every viewer to connect themselves to the global issue at hand because our consumerism and demand are the biggest reasons for the growth and continuation of modern-day slavery. The final component of this design is informing. Viewers receive an alarming look at some current statistics, then they are pointed in a direction to continue to do more. I want to provoke people to use whatever resources they have to do something about the injustices in our world.
