Child Trafficking Posters

As i was making my own mailshot of child trafficking i thought it would be a good idea to seee what current graphic design relates to my subject. I found these 3 posters below, even though the subject matter was not the most optimistic thing to be presented with i really liked the thoughts behind them in relation to layout, colour and message.

 This poster above it the one i think is most eye catching solely down to the colours it used. The red crossed out woman's mouth immediately catches your attention and then draws you to the message to the right of it. The black and light blue type works well together, by using a sans serif typeface the statement is much clearer to read therefore sticks in your mind much longer.

No news Is good News

The posters below inspired me when producing ideas for my own project. The one poster that caught my eye the most was top one solely down to the way the type has been arranged. I like the way the blue and red bounce of each other and draw you into the text. Its simple and works really well, techniques such as just rotating letters/words makes it much more interesting to read and the combination of different typefaces adds to this.
