No more forest

Before you criticize others, start with yourself: Germany is Europe´s number one in annual paper consumption.
I love posters but also for posters trees get cut down.

Inequality

The poster reflects the inequality between social classes. In this dog-eat-dog world, whoever is wealthier and has a bigger influence reigns over those who are inferior, and the “superiors” can enforce their rights more easily against the others, thus keeping them suppressed.

Simplemindedness is for the butt

The German word “Einfalt” (Simplemindedness), which denotes a certain narrowness of mind is made up composed of the word “ein” and the word “falt”.
So far “Einfalt” – following the word origin – is just something that applies to the human behind.

Monosanto

Worldwide, more and more industrial farming is carried on. Regardless of risks to man and nature monocultures are used from genetically modified seeds. Monsanto is heavily involved in this development. The agricultural chemical company is a global leader in biotechnology and has 90% of the patents of the currently cultivated genetically modified organisms.

Pure life

Nestlé ist Branchenführer im riesigen Markt der Flaschenwasser-Hersteller. Entgegen ihrem Image als umweltbewusster und ressourcenschonender Trinkwasserversorger, kauft Nestlé Nutzungsrechte an Wasservorkommen für wenig Geld, schließt die lokale Bevölkerung vom direkten Bezug der Ressource aus ‒ nur um ihnen anschließend das selbe Wasser, verpackt in Plastikflaschen, wieder zu verkaufen.

Dies alles geschieht zudem ohne Rücksicht auf die Umwelt, Beispielsweise wenn das Unternehmen die Quellen zusätzlich anbohrt um mehr Wasser als auf dem natürlichen Wege zu gewinnen. Dabei trocknen ganzen Landstriche aus, Ernten bleiben aus, ganze Ökosysteme sterben und Quellen haben keine Zeit sich wieder zu regenerieren.

In dem Bewusstsein, dass wahrscheinlich bereits 2025 ca. 3 Milliarden Menschen unter Wassermangel leiden werden, treibt Nestlé die Privatisierung und auch Monopolisierung dieser wichtigen Ressource stetig voran. Leider wird über dieses Thema nur sehr wenig berichtet und gesprochen.

Für mein Plakat habe ich das Logo von Nestlé der Realität angepasst, und den Slogan von „Good Food, Good Life“ zu „Control Water, Control Life“ umgewandelt. Wer das Wasser kontrolliert, kontrolliert das Leben.

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.

The poster is about the connection between education and democracy. A fair world is only possible if all people are responsible and capable of understanding and producing content matter. No one may be left out.

Wanderer above the Missiles

A seemingly idyllic landscape painting turns out to be a destructive nuclear weapon test by the youngest dictator in the world. The North Koreans are constantly launching new nuclear and missile tests. One wonders when the nuclear arms race will finally come to an end.

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.

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.

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.

On the other Side

Trying to reach the other side of the Mediterranean Sea, hoping to find a better life, refugees often pay a high price; their own lives. They might reach another side, but a side, which does not have landing shores.

Identity

This poster was made to talk about the absence of opinion and judgment of the people. The crisis of identity when a person just repeats and follows directions without a real personal point of view. We can see this in current social and political movements, which people blindly follow because this is the “correct form” but don’t really question anything.

Women’s rights violation

Women have less legal rights so they become more often victims of violence. In many countries, in many areas there are no clear laws or regulations to punish domestic violence, although it is a common problem. Domestic violence is generally regarded as a private matter not to be accepted by national jurisdictions.

Moderate Rebels

This quick sketch (originally drawn on a sticky note) is an ironical approach to clarify the paradox and misleading term “moderate rebels“. A disguised person sits in front of a TV. Holding a rifle in one hand and a TV remote in the other one. This guy does not seem to be in the mood for a rebellion. His dullness is emphasized by the words „Heute kein Bock!“ (engl. “Not Today!“).

To Peace!

The symbols are relative. Different functions can be named depending on where and how they are used. Sometimes a symbol has no meaning to someone. In the same way, concepts are relative too. Sometimes they’re not even concepts, they’re only words. Such as “Peace”.

Borderline

Donald Trump spent more than a year rousing crowds with a simple promise: “I’ll build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will have Mexico pay for that wall. Since the “bad hombres” were entering the United States and not leaving, Trump deemed it appropriate that Mexico would pay for this wall.

With a simple adjustment to the American flag I made this poster which depicts Trumps ultimate monument to xenophobia.

Forced

By law we are free. Free to decide to accept an offer and use it or not. This freedom of use is not permitted by the GEZ, in this case we are forced to pay for something whether we use it or not.
