The assignment was to bring awareness of the political trade war between china that has affected farmers through a visual, communicated poster.
The approach of the design started off with several weeks of research and gathered information on the trade war with groups of 3. From there came roughs and thumbnails of potential ideas that brought awareness to the issue. The design finally became digital as image, type, color, & sponsor became final.
Based on research, the idea of a "turf war" allowed us to navigate an image of war machinery on farmland using a tractor. The idea of a tractor turning into a tractor tank on a farm easily reads war. The poster successfully combines two ideas into one through a visual and communicated representation of the trade war.
