New International Poster Competition titled Poster for___. is hosted by Shangning Wang as part of his project and call to action, to show ones attitude on poster design.
These days, with the world’s most critical problems increasingly catching people’s attention and vehemently debated, poster design has become more and more influential in making changes and will definitely be more powerful in the future. The Poster for project is a call to action—show your attitude on poster design and let your audience know what you are designing posters for.
"What are you designing posters for? Are you designing for environment protection, education, water safety, child protection, or any other global issue? Are you designing for social awareness, or maybe you are designing posters for yourself. What is the role of poster design? What are the challenges to poster designers? To answer these questions, we need to step back and think about how we understand and consider poster design."
