The first Poster Monday spot of April goes to Feride Gümüş from Duisburg, Germany for her poster “Animal Extinction Awareness”. Feride moved to Turkey when she was 10 years old, studying Graphic Design at Yeditepe University in İstanbul. “I always had a passion to design so I knew graphic design would be the best for me. Every project is teaching me something new and I always try to improve in my next projects”.
About the poster “Animal Extinction Awareness” Feride tell us: “when I did my research on animal extinction, my main goal was to focus on only one kind of animal that is endangered. But the more I looked into it; I realized it’s a bigger issue. Unfortunately lots of animals are going extinct and changing this is in our hands. Not enough people realize or are aware of this problem. I chose the paw print to represent all the endangered animals; the paw directions are mainly facing the same direction and give the “fading” effect and represents how animal populations got worse with time. With my poster design, I wanted to warn the audience that many animals are going extinct. If we don’t do something as soon as possible, the list of endangered species will only increase.”
