Since we are currently working on posters I was browsing the web and came across a couple posters that I thought were done very well and a one that needed a little tweaking.
The first one about breast cancer with the hand caught my interest because like the adoption/abortion poster shown in class, the word beat and breast are only two letters apart. I think that the simplicity of this poster not only catches and holds attention but is creditable because the hand as a picture is more relate able than if it were a drawing or other graphic. I also like the one with the spurred running shoes because the western style is a more light hearted and an active approach to being aware of breast cancer. I like how the designer used the play on the word 'run' for two calls of action, the first being the race for the cure and the actually effort of running in a 5K race.
The poster that I thought had slightly missed the mark was the race for diabetes. It is very busy and it took me a while to find out what it was for. There is a lot of information on the poster that is needed but because there isn't a direction for the eye to follow it appears confusing and busy at a glance. I like how the word "run" is larger than the rest because that is the call of action, I just wish that there was a stronger more apparent indication as to what they are running for.
