Interpreting images from different cultures and the past
However much I like this poster,the only message I am getting from it is that is it clean and simple. The colours do not shout anger or passion, but simplicity. And teamed with the straight lines and clear typeface it is even more prominent that is the message. I do like it as a piece of Graphic Design and like how it can portray these things without any imagery. However it would be more effective to me if I could understand the words.
