The poster “Rich & poor” was designed for Good 50X70 2009 edition under the brief Healthcare Deprivation. “This topic is very sensible for me because in my country there are many people who have no money for treatment and they end up dying. I believe if a poster is strong enough, it has to be like a shot. In this poster I tried to reach this goal, to do a clear and visible image which could touch a wide audience.” comments Salome.
