For the first Poster Monday of October we featuring the poster “Freedom” from our previously featured designer Neda Abbasali Zadeh from Mashhad, Iran.
Iran at this moment is experiencing a very important social movement, part of its society no longer supports the restrictions and abuses imposed on women, sadly the trigger for this was the loss of the life of the young Mahsa Amini in the hands of the Police Moral. The voices in the country and outside of it demand freedom, we hope that they achieve it not only in this country but that one day not too far away the freedom of women in the world will not be a wish but a reality.
Neda tell us “Freedom is nothing but the right to live the way we want, and we do not have the simplest right in our country, Iran. Women are arrested and killed or imprisoned for saying the smallest right to choose. We do not have the right to speak and This means being in a cage. Life without freedom is like a body without a soul. In my poster, I depicted the bound and captive hands of young women and girls of my country to make their captivity known to the whole world”.

Today’s Poster Monday comes from Oman, designed by Salim al-japri and titled “Venus Cry” and tells us about the obsession to achieve beauty.
In the now globalized Western culture, the search for beauty has some facets that cannot be considered beautiful. An ordinary person is exposed to the thousands of messages that present beauty with obsessive standards, creating addictions that not only affect the body but also mental and social health, where depression, anxiety and other mental disorders are becoming more frequent among people from ages as young as nine years old up to thirty years old and more.

The Poster Monday spot of the day goes to Mihta Sevilmis for the poster “Extinct”. Mihta was born in 1999 in Turkey. She is a junior student at Yeditepe University and her major is in graphics design with a concentration on design and posters. The main reason behind her concentration on design on posters is that it enables her to convey her message to her target audience directly from her inner world. She expresses her perspective with different techniques. By keeping people as a part of her designs, she lets them discover for themselves.
The poster “Extinct” tackles the topic of endangered animals for the poster design. The reason for choosing this subject is that animals are not given sufficient importance and value. Mihta wants to raise awareness among people. While examining the reasons behind the extinction of these animals, she recognized that the main reason behind is humankind’s unconsciousness even if it is unintentional.
In order to draw attention to this reality, she used the remains of human faces with elements that will reveal the most distinctive characteristics of extinct animals this in order to draw attention over that one-day humankind will also face the risk of extinction.

This Poster Monday spot of the day goes to Raqee S. Najmuldeen, born in Baghdad/ Iraq. He is graduated from University of Baghdad with MA in graphic design and then completed PhD at University Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS) in 2012. Currently I work as an assistant professor at the College of Fine Arts, University of Baghdad, and teach undergraduate and postgraduate studies. Raqee have four papers in English published on design and three books on art and design, one in English (Surreal Photography and Effective Advertising, on Amazon) and the two other in Arabic language. His design has been featured more than once in Photoshop Creative, Practical Photoshop, Hall of Fame and Photographize magazines.
The poster featured above entitled “Isolation” talk us about how the world has faced a big, unexpected problem, which is Coronavirus. As a result, people’s fears increased. The media contributed greatly to terrorizing this issue. The issue was mixed with politics, and the countries started accusing each other about the origin of this virus. And we became confused and as a result, our home became a shelter, which we have no solution without. Therefore, this poster came as a critic to raise awareness of the dangers of this topic, the dangers of exaggerated fear of the virus. Used the visual metaphor, and took advantage of the myth that if an ostrich was afraid, it would bury its head in sand. The ostrich here symbolizes the fearful world that does not know what is going on around, is it a conspiracy or not. Instead of sand, a floor appears here from different icons, including mobile phones and net, to indicate social communication…, while the background appears in the Coronavirus pattern. “Burying our heads with sand does not solve the problem. We have to face it and think of effective solutions” tell us Raqee.
Stay around until be unveil the next Poster Monday and remember to submit your posters to be featured in our coming editions of Poster Monday.

A poster has to create an instant and understandable message. “I hope this poster can contribute to open eyes on the melt of Arctic and what will happen because of it.
