The poster

  1. 1. Dead Leaf by Christopher Scott The beginning I designed this poster in the year 2008. It was my final year project for Bdes Design and Communication in University of Ulster, Magee. It began my interest in the poster and in particular visuals for social communication. Title: Dead Leaf Concept: A dead leaf in the shape of South America and the holes in the leaf represent the deforestation in the Amazon rainforest. me and Dead Leaf in Milan for Good50x70
  2. 2. Alberto Korda original photograph Che Guevara by Jim Fitzpatrick Calculator? It is perhaps the most reproduced, recycled and ripped off image of the 20th Century. "I deliberately designed it to breed like rabbits," Jim Fitzpatrick “Combining capitalism and commerce, religion and revolution, the icon remains unchallenged. There is no other image that remotely takes us to all these different places.” Trisha Ziff
  3. 3. Che Guevara by Jim Fitzpatrick Rabbits It has become one of the world's most universally merchandized and objectified images, found on an endless array of items, including t- shirts, hats, posters, tattoos, and bikinis, ironically contributing to the consumer culture Guevara despised. Yet, he still remains a transcendent figure both in specifically political contexts and as a wide-ranging popular icon of youthful rebellion.
  4. 4. Self Portrait by Marcel Duchamps Dylan by Milton Glaser 6,000,000 Nearly six million were produced for enclosure in a Dylan album. One day a French photographer visited the studio and told the following story: He was on assign- ment traveling up the Amazon and stopped in a village of about one hundred Indians. He entered a hut and, as his eyes grew accustomed to the darkness, he saw the Dylan poster on the wall. He never was able to find out how it got there.
  5. 5. Lord Kitchener earlier version Uncle Sam by J. M. Flagg 4,000,000 More than four million copies of this image were printed between 1917 and 1918. Over four million copies of the poster were printed during World War I, and it was revived for World War II. Flagg used his own face for that of Uncle Sam (adding age and the white goatee), he said later, simply to avoid the trouble of arranging for a model.
  6. 6. It’s not happening here but it’s happening now by Walker Tens of millions of downloads In Switzerland, Amnesty International arranged 200 individual posters, each meticulously matched to its specific surroundings, showing actual scenes of human rights abuse from around the world. The resulting posters show actual human rights abuse happening on the streets in Switzerland, where people live, where they shop or take a tram, in the here and now.
  7. 7. Victory by Shigeo Fukuda No barriers Fukuda dramatically shatters all cultural and linguistic barriers with his universally recognizable style. Shigeo died January 11, 2009

  9. 9. Why the Poster? In persian, to say ‘poster’ we use the word ‘Affiche’ and in french ‘you are affiching something’. To affiche means to express; to show. The opposite of hide. So you have the poster! Hervé Matine Founder of Poster for tomorrow Because everyone is obsessed with Digital format. That the street walls are left blank and alone. So we felt there was a gap there.
