Poster Monday: Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
Welcome to another edition of Poster Monday. For this spot of the day we have a poster from Melike Bozkurt a am 23 years old designer. She lives in Istanbul Turkey, is a student at Yeditepe University, Faculty of Fine Arts, Graphic Design Department. At the same time, she studies at the Faculty of Architecture, Department of Interior Design.
Melike tell us about her poster “The subject of the poster I designed is“Obsessive Compulsive Disorder”. The reason I chose this topic is to raise awareness about this disease. Obsessive-compulsive disorder is a condition in which people have repetitive thoughts called obsessions, and because this thought bothers them, they engage in repetitive behaviors called rituals or compulsions, usually in order to relax”. While designing this poster, my starting point was the brain, which is our thinking center. These complex and repetitive thoughts that occur in the brain greatly affect the life of the person. I wanted to reflect this confusion in the brain in my poster. On the other hand, I compared our brain to a walnut with its similarity and supporting its development.
We designers should support people with the disease by including these issues in our designs in order to raise more awareness of such diseases. I hope my poster will inspire these people, stay happy!”
