Design is Change

Saving Sage Animal Rescue Foundation is the non-profit organization I decided to do my posters on. They help give home to dogs, cats, and various other small animals. They also have fostering, volunteering, and educational programs to raise awareness and help the animals.

I decided to base my posters on old propaganda posters as well as Bauhaus inspired artwork. I did so because those old posters were usually bold and straight to the point, so that anyone could understand the concept easily. Since these would appeal to the general audience, I did not want to put too much concept on them so I made them very bold and with a single word that dealt with adopting, fostering, and educating.

Poster Concept:

This poster focuses on hate groups that essentially abuse of their rights to expression, assembly, and religion by doing so in a manner that expresses hate towards other and invokes violence among the population. Inspired by the recent Charlottesville protests. It depicts a KKK member seemingly riding on the back of another person, representing the rest of the population as well as the African American people, whom are one of their targets for hate, while making a pun on the phrase about their duality of hate and anonymity.
