My goal with this poster was to show support for the people of Ukraine with artwork that featured a message of love and support rather than visuals of war. My hope is that by using a simple, powerful, and universal message the artwork will remain relevant long after the war has ended. If nothing else, the artwork can serve as a reminder of the strength and compassion of the people of Ukraine in times of hardship.
My process for this piece was to use a purely typographic approach that incorporates the colors of the Ukrainian flag. Additionally, I wanted the artwork to imply strength through the use of a continuous, unbroken strip. The bright colors of the Ukrainian flag over a flood of black serve as a beacon of hope in the dark void of war.
I hope this poster is well received and that it helps in some small way. This cause is truly important and a great opportunity to show the power of design and I am honored to participate. Bravo Graphis!
