The first poster Monday of 2016 belongs to Mary Anne Pennington and her poster entitled A Lie Or Truth, created for the International Poster Biennale Bielsko-Biala 2015. The theme for the design was to encourage thought regarding the general notion of truth, its cognitive and ethical aspects, and its popular understanding. Her focus was on the concept of telling “A Lie Or Truth” and the consequences of those two, hoping that in the end the light of the truth will “stand tall”.
Mary Anne was born in Kansas, United States in 1973. She is a graphic designer, focusing on social awareness. She is recognized internationally for her poster designs. Her work has been exhibited in over sixty locations worldwide including France, Beirut, Lebanon, Iran, Poland, Italy, Korea and the United Kingdom. Mary Anne has always been a curious individual and feels it is essential to never stop questioning. Social issues are very important to her and she utilizes her time to promote awareness on these issues that ultimately affect us all, including poverty, equality and education.
About her design, Mary Anne says: “I feel this is a strong message for our current society, with so much information out there. How do we know what is true and what is a lie? Will we use our own minds, research, and choose the right path to truth? Will we listen to the media, and gossip, and be pulled under with lies?”.
