Monopoly

This poster was made to denounce the concept of corruption. It is a personal vision on monopolistic practices, an analogy between industry and the monarchy where there is a single leader.

Cage

In many Islamic countries women rights are suppressed, there are too many rules and they have to dress in overall burkas that look like restraining cages, exposing only eyes that resemble a small prison window revealing a trace of light. This appeal is intended to loosen the restrictions on women.

Pornstick

The Age of the Selfies started long ago. Regardless of where we are or what we are doing, the only limit to seeing ourselves in our favorite pose, is the length of our own arm. Crafty inventors have become aware of this evolutionary disadvantage and developed the so-called »Selfie Stick«. It isn’t naive to imagine the suitable content, the quick-to-adapt porn industry will soon uncover for this new communication channel (just as they have done with Video, DVD, Internet, Google Glasses, etc.). Because at the end of the day, us selfie-junkies are our own private paparazzis, trying to capture our exposed selves.

»Modus Operandi«

The capitalistic exploitation logic steers us increasingly destructive to the abyss of self-destruction. Modern human beings remain in an attitude of passive endurance and seemingly comfortable self-deception, when the alternative would be a necessary revolution. We remain calm as Hindu cows and operate business as usual.

Like the fish in the water we are in our safe and peaceful environment. The feeling of helplessness turns us into passive observers.

»WHAT YOU EAT«

Stomach and brain are strictly connected, and every sensorial experience is assimilated and transformed into emotions by those two essential parts of our organism. For this reason, every time we feed our body we also feed our soul.

“Angst!”/”Fear!”

Mut zur What

The first time I heard about the competition, I thought »Courage for what?« because I did not understand what  it was about. Later when I read the details, I understood the significance of these 3 words. Sometimes we have the courage, burning inside, but we are not sure how to use that rage, we don‘t have a suitable way to express it and tend to do what the masses do.  idea how cruel his short existence will be, before it ends at a fast food restaurant.

Poster to increase the voter participation

The main element of the poster is a gradient which uses all the main political parties colors. These are Patres which have already been part of the German government, and have a good chance of becoming pat of it again. Above the gradient stands „Wähl:“, which means “vote:”. The way the colors fade into each other is meant to symbolize the overlapping political ideals of each party.

Solutions instead of fighting and arguing!

Capitalism

As a graphic designer the basis of my art-work is often world issues that bother me. Recession is one of these matters for which I designed my poster titled Capitalism. Colorful hats are metaphors of a Capitalist society which invisibly deceives its members and as a result, economic pressure is born. The culture industry produces the cultural commodity which is the sale of similar mass produced goods. This industry produces these products based on the human perception of life. The net result is anti-enlightenment or public manipulation to ensure and limit independent thought, thinking, and judgment. All this is achieved by the culture industry while making the masses believe that this is new and exactly what they’re looking for. The result forces the public to conform to the system and capitalism at large and prevents critical thinking.

Hunger

Hunger is a social problem that exists throughout the world, physically and mentally.  Mankind not only needs money to live, you need it for food, to survive, to feed the soul of motivation and to succeed. You need food to protect your family from disease. Without food mankind has no sense to survive in this globalized world of the wealthy.

Future Vision

Ritalin is »the« trendy medication of our time, which is being prescribed way too often, in my opinion to active children in order to adjust them to common standard. In my poster, a future is shown in hyperrealistic style, where Ritalin is used as a basic ingredient in children’s nutrition products, such as the well known Swiss ice cream brand »Rakete« from Frisco (Nestlé).

Truth

A person is noticibly nervous and even frightened by what reveals itself on the table after the package is opened – the person is frightened so much that he or she almost does not dare to look at it.

My idea deals with the individual and his or her fear and unwillingness to accept personal responsibility for the (often brutal) truth in his or her own life. The opportunity to bear this responsibility reveals itself not only in difficult situations but also in seemingly trivial ones. I believe that avoiding your responsibility for the truth has severe individual and global consequences.

Zwangsprostitution

Allein in Europa werden über 500 000 Frauen gewaltsam zur Prostitution gezwungen. Mit ihrem Handel machen Menschenhändler einen Umsatz von etwa 10 Mrd. Dollar im Jahr. Rechtsstaatliche Maßnahmen dagegen verpuffen meist im Dschungel aus Bürokratie, Korruption und Aussage-Angst auf der Opferseite. Und wenn doch mal eine den Mut beweist, etwas auszusagen: wer glaubt schon einer Hure?

I’m watching you

Mickey spies children without parental consent The Walt Disney company has been fined to pay 3 millions dollars after that the Federal Trade Commission discovered that the Walt Disney company collected illegally informations about children registered on a children Disney website. About 1 million of children are concerned. This informations were used and published by an another Walt Disney online games website. For the americans laws, a website needs the parental consent if it want to collect, use or publish them. The FTC was very strong on this subject, telling that this kind of infractions are very serious and severely punished.

The poster shows an another unknown face of Walt Disney. Mickey is black, dirty, frightening with this big dripping sentence written on it, taken from the fiction “1984″ written by Georges Orwell telling the story of a supervised, secured and undercontrol society. This poster speaks about an another aspect of the “wonderful world of Walt Disney”!

Go west go waste

Sei westlich – Sei verschwenderisch! 
Der gedankenlose Umgang mit unserem Essen ist nicht nur ein aktueller Trend, sondern hat eine lange Tradition in unseren Breitengraden. Bereits im Barockzeitalter wurden die Menschen durch die Lebensmittelsymbolik in sogenannten »Vanitas-Stilleben« ermahnt, ihre Essensgelüste zu mäßigen. An jener Maßlosigkeit hat sich aber nicht viel geändert. Wir leben heute in einem wahren Schlaraffenland: Eine Auswahl in XXL, 24/7 verfügbar, das Beste, das Neuste, immer frisch, immer billig. Und was wir nicht aufessen können, das schmeissen wir halt weg.

Animal Farms

The Wiesenhof brand uses the image of a small country house on a green field, with a few trees, to promote their products. It is meant to sell the idea of idyllic farms and happy chickens. Through extensive marketing the brand is very well-known in Germany, calling itself “the #1 poultry brand”. Every third chicken eaten is from Wiesenhof. The PHW-Group, which owns Wiesenhof, is the #1 animal exploitation company in Germany, and third largest in Europe regarding chicken farming, poultry raising and chicken slaughter. Every week this group slaughters around 4,5 million chickens.
