The poster focuses around Forced Labour segment of Human Trafficking and represents the concept of the man in need, who find the solution or the opportunity to solve his life essential needs and struggles by shaking hand with another man, who seems to have status and connections and obviously building the world of promises to the one in need to gain his trust. The man in need being trapped in his situation and not knowing what to do, follows the man with the promises blindly, without knowing what he is signing for. Once the promising handshake happened, the man signed himself to the forced labour and disappearing without a trace by undergoing unimaginable conditions and attitude of those who are behind this filthy business.
The poster portrays child trafficking. Children are put in a vending machine as a metaphor for buying a candy, an everyday activity for a child. This is why the poster presents the kids at a very low cost, to show how easy it is to buy a child. The color palette is composed of strong dramatic colors to enhance the poster’s concept and to put an emphasis on the terror that is involved with this horrible act.
From the graphic point of view, several small hands represent the abducted children who are eager to be rescued, while the large hands represent the people who are going to be rescued. Wearing a string of musical symbols on the hands represents light and hope. From the perspective of color, red and beige echo each other, forming a positive and negative pole, which can highlight the strong desire for freedom of abducted children
In the whole picture, there is a helpless child in a sack. He peeps out the outside world from the sack. Outside, there are many hands reaching out to him: some want to abduct him, some want to save him, and many may be between good and evil.
The text information on the poster is from the real information sold on the Internet. It is heartbreaking to sell a human being as a commodity with a price tag. So I made these two posters. Tying the wire means losing freedom, and labeling the goods means selling.
Human trafficking is intolerable, every victim is innocent and pathetic. They were trafficked to strange places far from home, so they may have forgotten their memories of hometown. Not don’t want to answer but can‘t answer. Let’s hope human trafficking doesn’t happen.
