The second Poster Monday spot of december belongs to Ioannis Fetanis from Greece for his poster entitled “Double Faced”. Ioannis Fetanis was born in Athens, he studied Graphic Design at the Athenian Artistic and Technological Group and graduated with honours as Bachelor of Arts. He completed his studies in 2007 obtaining a Master of Arts in Design (Social Design & Visual Communication of N.G.O.) from Middlesex University, London.
“The poster “Double Faced” remembers the 23rd of August because it was not just another Black Ribbon Day, another European Day of Remembrance for Victims of Stalinism and Nazism. Two faces, two personalities, two nations, two ideologies wholly identical, entitled differently though. So if you just name Stalin, as Adolf and Hitler, as Joseph, even if you swap their visages the result is counterpart.
The remarkable message communicated via the poster designed is the fact that the Totalitarian Regimes have no face, no country, no identity, no time. You can encounter extreme behaviours and murderous attacks everywhere, anytime by everyone not only in history books. Do not stay in the face, in the words used, in the language speaking, they are just function details, not distinctive characteristics. Focus in the master race, in their purpose of existence, in their mission possible.” says Ioannis.
