New entries in our Protest Poster 2 Competition set a powerful tone
There are a myriad of issues to be tackled today. Protest Posters take on these issues one by one, and with new entries coming in for our Protest Poster 2 competition, it seems that a lot of ground is being covered. A recent submission by Jordanian Design Firm Wesam Mazhar Haddad entitled “Rusted Tears” (ABOVE, LEFT) explores how water is wasted every day. Often, faucets are left open and rainwater is left undrained. The image suggests that if we waste too much water, we will only be left with our tears. The poster was requested by The Museum of Cultural Heritage for their “Water Crisis” exhibition in 2015.
“Bon Appetit,” (ABOVE, RIGHT) on the other hand, speaks for the creatures who live in our natural sources of water. The poster by Design Firm Scott Laserow Posters reads, “2/3 of the world’s fish suffer from plastic ingestion.” Here we see a dramatic black and white image of a fish whose body is made up of plastic bags and other plastic rubbish. The effect is quite moving and describes how humans effect ecosystems with unnecessary littering.
