Cesar Gomez-Find the Missing 43

Lies! I wanted to make a poster that brings attention to all the lies that happen in Mexico. All the blood that is shed due to the Cartels and a corrupt government yet nothing seems to happen.

Margaret Padilla-Unite St. Louis
I chose to make a poster about the protests and riots surrounding the Michael Brown/police brutality case in St. Louis Missouri. As a St. Louis native it is very sad to hear about the turmoil in my hometown. Racism is, and unfortunately will most likely, always be an issue. What really matters is how people react when they realize how it is infecting communities. This poster is a graphic representation of that unity. The arch of St. Louis is used as a graphic element.

Luke Armitage-Social Media Addiction 
This poster is focused on Social Media Addiction. It uses a series of selfies and pays tribute to Andy Warhol.

Chanvibol Loek-No Child Soldiers poster

My poster dealt with the issue of Child Soldiers in support of an international human rights and advocacy to end military recruitment of anyone under 18 years of age. The organization Child Soldiers International is working to make a difference on this issue.

Jaime Sellers-Helgeson-Medicine Abuse Project




































































The issue I chose to address is the problem of medicating children with prescription pills, which have addictive and psychoactive short and long term effects on the development and well being of each individual.

Melanie R.-Fair Trade





























































I am very interested in sustainability. I am fortunate to be born in a country where education and a safe workplace is standard. Taking advantage of less fortunate people to save money is simply wrong. That is why I wanted to make a fair trade poster.

These posters were conceptualized and designed by first semester Design 100 students. Each student selected a social, political or cultural theme of their choice and used conceptual techniques to create images with impact.
