The development of a compelling visual design system seeks to unify a system's differing components yet instill excitement through its innovative representation of meaning. This project focuses on the manipulation and arrangement (composition) of typography and image as it conveys messages through a poster series.
This poster shows the trauma, suffrage, and oppression experienced during the Mothers of De Plazo Movement. Despite the adversity, these people faced they continue to be courageous while enduring a relentless battle for societal change.
This poster is meant to show the trauma that the Mothers of De Plazo experienced when their children went missing. Fusing image and type together was used to help evoke emotion for the potential viewer. Blur, motion, and fragmentation were used to help outside audiences emotionally connect with the traumatic experience of being snatched and reinforce the concept of something missing. Hand photography was incorporated and used as an index clue to help portray this idea of being taken and what that would look like from a third-person point of view, experiencing it from the child's perspective in a visual form.
