UN climate change

The UN Has Lost All Credibility. United Nations climate summit turned to  war of the poor and the rich. Discrimination was made for interests of the rich at the summits.

Rückgrat

Unsere Arbeit lässt sich schnell beschreiben: Dinge, die wir scheiße finden. Und die mussten einfach mal gesagt werden.
Da Wut in der Regel subjektiv ist haben wir Wörter aus unserem Sprachgebrauch, hauptsächlich Eigenkreationen, verwendet. Die verschobene Optik und die Farbigkeit unterstützen diesen Ansatz und machen agressiv/unruhig, wenn man das Plakat länger ansieht.

Radioactive Milk

Nuclear disaster contaminates many food such as milk, mushrooms, fish, vegetables, meats, fruits, rice, tea and etc. Once it happens, it will make the nature continue to be contaminated because of long half-lives of radioactive materials (those of Sr-90 and Cs-137 are about 30 years). Unstable damaged Fukushima nuclear power plants still emit radioactive materials to the environment. I live in Tokyo, and like many other people I have had fears for invisible radiation since last year, which was often invoked when I thought what to eat. I have expressed in this poster what I have felt in this pessimistic daily life. Nuclear power is very destructive to both the nature and our lives.

Tax evasion to Switzerland

In the last few years the issue of „ tax evasion“ became a central topic in German media. On my poster text 2 letters are missing: CH – the abbreviation for Switzerland.

Oh Happy Holidays

Digitalisation has changed our lives – and the way we communicate with each other. In some moments, it seems as if our mobile phones are making life really difficult for us. Then it’s just a matter of: heads up and smartphones down.

Scataract

Right-wing populist parties in Europe have been gaining strength for years. Simple answers to complex questions turn them into stars of the modern age. This poster is an appeal: Don’t trust anyone blindly!

Happy Holidays

Consciousness for climate change is constantly growing. But while we’re willing to make small changes in our everyday lives, there are still many areas that remain completely untouched in their immense carbon dioxide emission. Many people commute to work in order to save greenhouse gasses, but book a transatlantic flight for their hippie-holiday in Thailand. And while it’s the most poolutive way of travel, airtravel makes up only 2% of worldwide greenhouse gas emmision. We need to think bigger then buying bio.

The poster is against animal cruelty. While the wolf stands for animals in general, the dance steps symbolize the ease and cynicism with which man is doing so.

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.

Work-Life-Balance

When you are working in the creative industry for example, you probably love what you do. Being busy with your work all the time seems almost natural. The Poster is a little reminder that there are still other worlds you can enter.

Leave the Everyday Behind

In this absurd and strange situation worlds collide. On the one hand you see tourists, looking for pleasure and relaxation and on the other hand refugees, risking their lives to escape war, persecution and distress. A scene where suffering of the „aliens“ cannot be ignored. The question is, however, why a legal and secure entry is not allowed to such people seeking protection.

Form Phallus Function

Form Phallus Function is more than a pun – it points out and criticizes that architecture and design have been a male domain since ever. Simplicity in color and shape, inspired by the iconic bauhaus designs, hit the nail on the head and – in a charming and humorous manner – ridicule this ever lasting motto in design. Less women are never more!

#•••––•••

Tens of thousands of refugees are on their dangerous journey across the Mediterranean Sea to Europe. In recent years, the number of »boat people« has increased drastically, and with it the number of drowned refugees. The »SOS« sign on the horizon of the Mediterranean Sea is a call for help and a bearer for hope at the same time and requires support.

Monopoliving

Life in cities has become a question of financial status over recent years. Rent and property prices have increased way faster than wages have. At the same time new spaces are only scarcely created. More and more people are struggling to find an adequate place to live and this fact is further creating social divide. This is a real problem of our times.

Donald and I designed this poster together. He is a big fan of my work. We did a tremendous job. Tremendous. The design is really great. We made graphic design great again. Afterwards we played some Golf and ate Chocolate cake. It was a beautiful piece of chocolate cake, I can tell you that.

My poster represent the fear that children feels when they are abused from their own fathers. The poster is like the shoe of the father when he is coming home and at the same time is like the door of the home with the afraid eyes of the child.

These Times of Feeble Minds

Raging bulls foam for red rags, and red rags require expert guidance. The cattle longs to be driven.

An overcrowded and digitally leveled humanity is in dear need for a sense of significance. Who whines is fed hot air through a thick teat, which should be be enough to fill them up.

Ironing and getting ironed

Despite great progress in equality between man and woman in everyday life a woman is often confronted and degraded in the planning of her future and career or in the family circle with outdated gender thinking.
This poster is a play on words with sexist elements that degrades a woman on the role of a housewife and a sex object. The poster “Ironing and getting ironed” is an exaggerated confrontation with the still often disparagingly rated life of a woman.
The woman irons well-behaved the laundry and indicates at the same time by her bare breasts that she can always be ironed. “Ironed” is a German dialect meaning: “Getting fucked”.

True story, I’m sorry!

Oh you, United States of America… A country that became famous for the words, “I have a dream” and “yes we can” quickly downgraded with the words “grab them by the pussy”. An aggressive, overcooked wiener with an awful toupet, not only managed to go from asshole to millionaire, but trumped everybody’s fears and somehow became president of the United States. People don’t even bother to see if the news is fake or real anymore.

I, Johanna Daum, am pissed! It pisses me off that an orange bully gets to spread racism, sexism, and hate with no consequences and even gets applauded by some for it. This is a true story kids and I am so very sorry. The sad truth happened just as this photo, suddenly out of nowhere and unwelcomed, while grilling by the Rhein this photo was taken on my iPhone. Afterwards slightly cropped and aligned, photoshop can stay in bed..

Oh you United States of America how you make my ass crack itch when I think of you!

Ego

Rugged individualism is a common disease of our time. It is bound with selfishness and has many negative consequences at all levels. Excessive self-adoration leads to ignoring each other; each individual sees its own interests without consideration of the common good, while we live in a world, in which we are increasingly interdependent on each other.
To illustrate this idea, I chose to use an iconic image of pure beauty and transformed it thoroughly in order to create something monstrous. The belly button – is the center of the individual and moving it to the center of the Venuses face expresses this imbalance called “belly button gazing”.
