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.

STOP | Portugal

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.
