Human trafficking is “a crime against humanity” as it denies the victims’ human dignity and sees them as mere products to be used to enrich another. In this poster, there is a sad, young woman standing inside a box. She is like a doll in its box waiting for being sold in the store. I wanted to emphasize that, in the eyes of the human traffickers who put her in this situation, she is no different from any other product. Therefore I arranged typographic elements as tags.
Broken the shadows, save the children
You don’t know what this person’s heart is thinking, he is looking at you and is going to sell you, be careful of such a person
In my poster I wanted to cause impact and transmit the message, for that I included a little girl, victim of trafficking sitting on the top of a hill, the elevation meaning the course she had to go thru, reaching for a glowing lotus flower, a flower many times associated with human trafficking as it symbolizes renewal and superation, a flower that rises from the muddy waters and blossoms into a beautiful flower, representing the journy many of these victims had to go thru, so in the poster you can see the girl reaching for the flower as only her hopes prevail during those times, the color blue is also used in the flower and in the girls dress as it is the universal color for human trafficking prevention.
The designer wanted to express that human trafficking targets physically weak people, such as women, the elderly, children, just like in the song “Shadows After Dark” by Reggae Artists United. Human trafficking violates the human dignity of so many vulnerable people and constitutes a true crime against humanity. The designer wants to stress the urgency to stop human trafficking with the visual elements introduced to this poster.
From the perspective of the victim and the offender, this series of works expresses two states of sadness and cruelty in blue and red. To hide the pain on the faces of trafficked persons and the distorted faces of the perpetrators to satisfy their selfish desires, I hope that people can find sympathy in the poster, which aims to arouse people’s attention to human trafficking. Maybe one day, this will happen to us.
This poster combines human with machine to show that exploitation and forced labor make human not human.
There is a beautiful eye under the ugly appearance, but the eye is permeated with ugly, vicious claws. The devil’s claw is reaching the palm of the helpless child. Beautiful eyes are the appearance of lies. Inside, it is a vicious soul. Trafficking in human beings is like a demon that makes children helpless and makes families desperate. To stop trafficking in human beings, we must recognize the vicious claw in our beautiful eyes.
In the dark world, we don’t know the terrible techniques kidnapped, and for the victim, we hope to kidnapped to make money without these terrible methods, release us is equal to the release of life, expect them to use the legitimate method, earn Take the wealth.
The poster is made from a black background. In this background, a photo and a title and sub-title are inserted.
With the title with the capital letter, we give the idea that we want to affirm what we are saying and that it is urgent to stop.
The sub-title “human trafficking” is separated by a red line as if the goal to end human trafficking is marked.
Then the photo of a woman tied up with open hands and a sad look is like an urgent request for help, mixed with the black background shows that people who suffer from human trafficking are alone if no one helps to stop. In the photograph my sister (sister of the poster’s author) was used in order to show how human trafficking can happen to anyone.
