Public Awareness Poster

By
assignment for Advertising class.

Were required to create a poster within the topic ‘;Public Service Announcement’.
We are given 2 weeks to complete it, and it has to be in A3 size (full color) on professionally mounted. It’s a poster promoting awareness on any topic related to public service. Topics such as road safety, excessive energy consumption, global warming, war, domestic violence, drugs, and etc.

I personally have chosen the topic ‘Smoking’, simply because I can relate to it. No, I am not a smoker but my father is. He smokes at least 1 pack of cigarettes a day. And as a daughter, and a designer I feel that I can reach out to individuals like him through my design. It is important to me at least, to smack them in the face with the truth.

SMOKING KILLS.

Plain and simple. It’s a fact most smokers don’t take seriously.
They have never thought about it cause smoking relieves their stress and makes them look cool. However, the bottom line and hard truth will always be that smoking will kill you.

And it will affect those who are close to you. How would you feel if you saw someone you love dying slowly in front of you? And is too ignorant to admit it?
So this is my main drive to create this anti-smoking poster.

For this my poster will be plain, simple and striking.
It will be easy to understand, and will send out the message clearly. It will be plain and universal, everyone will be able to interpret it. It will reach out to all ages, no matter what religion or sex. My poster will also be striking and trendy. It will pop-out and catch your attention. The tagline and body text will be presented in a manner of sarcasm and straight forward. I don’t feel the need to hold back in this part. I want the readers to think and reflect on it, so a more ‘direct’ tagline and body text will do perfectly.

With this ideas and concept in mind, I start to do mind maps. This will help me to stay within my concept and guide me through the developing process. I then did some brain storming with some of my colleagues. I jot down the ideas and did an intensive research on smoking. The statistics were mind-blowing. I then sketch out my ideas and under my lecturers’ guidance, I develop it further,
Until the design and idea was spot on.
