The topic of fake news has always been relevant as a problem. In this period of the pandemic and episodic lockdowns throughout 2020, it’s easy to lose sight of the reality outside if you only read the sources that are fishy and suspicious. The poster is a warning to think twice when we receive information and to question social media. The poster“F@KE NEWS”asks questions related to the filtering of information and the manipulation of modern society. Every day we are bombarded with news of a dubious origin. The truth has become extinct. The media serves only political interests. We have to raise more awareness and inform more people for a better future. “Poster design has become an essential part of how I visualize my most inner thoughts on different topics. Once you step into the field of creativity and freedom in the poster there is no going back. For me the purpose of a poster is to create cultural exchange beyond the barriers in the world and reflect on the current situation”.
