For the Poster Monday spot of the day we have a poster from Selin Türkölmez Balkara from Istanbul, Turkey, for her poster “Hope”. Selin lives in Istanbul and studied Art Design Management at Yeditepe University, Faculty of Fine Arts. She worked as a Visual Manager within a graphic design department of a company and is currently studying in a graphic design master program. Selin also works as an academician at Yeditepe University in the Graphic Design Department.
In the early days of 2017, more than 200 refugees have died drowning when crossing over the Mediterranean Sea between Turkey and Greece or freezing to death in deadly weather conditions. They cross the sea in makeshift boats which they hoped would bring them to safety. “Hope” was a reaction to the refugees who drowned because of the bad conditions of those boats. “As a graphic designer we always need to express our opinions and feelings in social events and try to draw attention to the events to make a change”, says Selin.
