My exploration for this week is collected more poor children from all over the world. At first, i was though my audience will be Chinese people, which is based on the fairytale i picked; However, later i decided to the worldwide, because this fairytale had been translated to many languages and published in many countries, so it has became a world classical fairytale. I researched where is the poor area in the world, and children life in these places. These posters are propaganda for these children who doesn’t have enough food to eat or can’t afford to go to school. I want to use a powerful sense to convey the emotions to help these poor children. The first feeling that came to my mind is the Constructivism, due to the Russian constructivism was influenced by the october revolution, there are so many radical artists created artworks based on the social background. These artists were using their strong expression to show the social purpose and their ideas, also the color they used are very bold, so, i got some inspiration from them. Through the feedback i got from professor, she introduced few artists’ artworks, which contains Marianne Brandt, John Heartfield, Gustav Klutsis and Moholy Nagy. I did some research on their artworks, sum up their design layout, and the color they used, also what typeface they choose.I got so many inspiration from them to used in my own design. Even though this project has relationship with art movement, but it works. At the beginning of sketches, i also want to use some new materials, like foil papers stick on the poster, which can let audience see themselves through this paper, for them to image, if they are one of these children, do they want somebody help them? It’s kind of reflection process. Also, i want to use the contrast between the rich and the poor to evoke sympathy of people to help these poor children. For me, the children were born equal, that they should enjoy the rights of other children have. My creativity could express my ideas very clear, and it has ability to make the audience clearly too. Anyway, these poster’s creative has a strong connect with the fairytale that i selected.
