For this project, students had the task of creating a poster through visual storytelling to address a social issue.
Every year, La Bestia—a cargo train in Mexico—transports half a million migrants to the U.S. border. The poster features two birds, symbolizing the hope and despair of this journey: some will make it to the US, while others are injured or die tragically. This uncertainty is also expressed in the title of the poster, One Way Ticket.
The poster effectively conveyed the hardship of a migrant's journey through the use of icons and symbols, creating a powerful emotional response and leaving a lasting impression.
