No More Landmines

This poster by Columbian designer Victor Manuel Barrera got my attention.

No More Landmines poster

“I wanted to highlight a problem that lingers long after countries have been at war. Planted like seeds of death and mutilation, land mines are indiscriminate, making victims of soldiers and civilians, children and adults. Most people who activate these mines will die, and those who survive often require amputations, leaving an imprint of indelible pain in their minds and bodies.”

Victor’s design is one of 122 posters featured in the Graphic Advocacy exhibition.

I couldn’t find a link for Victor’s website, unfortunately.

  2. Thanks Maria, and you’re very welcome.

  3. I really love the impact-fulness of this poster. It definitely gets the message across.

  4. This poster is excellent at getting your focus- both physically and mentally. Direct yet subtle at the same time. It reminds me of something George Carlin might have had in his collection.

Anything to add?
