The first Poster Monday of February is “Conversation” designed by Goyen Chen, born in Taichung, Taiwan, specializing in graphic design. Graduated with a PhD in Digital Media Design from Asia University, his work has been exhibited in 35 countries in the past almost two years.
“The intention of this poster is to reflect on the way people talk to each other today. We all tend to resent people who disagree with us, so conversations can easily turn violent, like a gun that is just one hand away from being loaded and the trigger pulled. Because I feel so strongly about the proliferation of gun violence in our society, I just want to make it clear that the root of the violence problem is really more about communication and not taking action and never creating an irreversible situation, and once you do take action, it’s out of control. I am passionate about creating posters, hoping to replace language barriers with images so that we can communicate without barriers around the world” tell us Goyen
