And with their physical presence in public places, they increased the number of people with corona. Therefore, they should have been given a serious warning; by various ways. One of these methods of social information is posters. ”I used the form of the Minesweeper game in the Windows PC, to warn of the danger of leaving home; any extra and unnecessary steps will lead to disaster. For me Poster is a simple yet effective method of speaking with the audience and expressing my emotions and vision” says Hassan.
