This project was to create a screen-printed poster design using a minimum of 3 colors and explore the different methods that we had experimented with thus far. For this project, we were asked to use the principles of designing for good, by designing a poster to react to the tragedies taking place in Ukraine.
For this poster, I chose to create a piece that honors the work of beloved Ukrainian folk artist Maria Prymachenko. Using similar color palettes and imagery I crafted a new illustration that depicts a rendition of a dove from "A Dove Has Spread Her Wings and Asked for Peace". Instead of birds flying overhead, I chose to include military jets, instead of just flowers I depict bombs, transforming into foliage and flowers into explosions.
This poster was designed at the same time as news came that the Russians had bombed one of the museums that housed many of Maria Prymachenko's works. This poster was received well by the class and reflected in my overall grade. This design proved to be a difficult process not just in the crafting of the print, but in the research of such a tragedy.
