I have chosen to do the D&AD dont panic competition brief. 'Create an image for don''t panic that captures the theme of resistance'. The brief is asking me to capture on paper resistance to the politics of existence.

Politics of existence is awareness of the identity of particular aspects of reality.


I really like this advertising campaign by Tria (colour shouldn't matter). I love that it is not a poster and that it becomes interactive with the viewer.


This is an image i came across for discrimination. It appears cliché, but i think its a simple and effective idea that gets the message across.

I think these advertisements for FARM 'don't eat meat' are really effective, they grabbed, but more importantly held my attention. They are designed by Sandra Scher. I think its the harsh imagery which some people might find hard to bear that really garbed me. I don't like the imagery of the dead animals but I like how they have replaced a dinner plate, and how the cutlery is arranged in a place setting to amplify the consequences of ones choice.

victory poster by Fang Chen.
"The capitalised V represented by the two fingers is a universal symbol for victory and is understood by viewers of all races and cultures". The missing fingers also speak to the reality that human beings often experience suffering in order to achieve triumph.
