Human rights poster Analysis

Human rights poster Analysis

The poster is made up of a photograph with overlying texts, a border and a logo. It has been made digitally, likely by students from the University of California, seeing as their logo is on the poster. The Text is white, All caps, to be read easily from a distance on the mostly black background of the photograph. The first, largest, and most outstanding test is in the top right corner, up against the border, and reads, ‘CAUSES OF RAPE: SMILING…FLIRTING…BARE SKIN RAPISTS’. At the bottom of the poster, inside the poster, in smaller font there is written, “CAL CONSENT CAMPAIGN” and bellow this, in thinner font, “HALLOWEEN 2013”. To the left of these in the ASUC logo, this is also in white and depicts a bear, and smaller font, which says “OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT”.

The photograph in the background depicts a large, grey-white brick building in the corner, surrounded by trees, at night. In the centre is a woman with her back turned to the camera. She has shoulder length brown hair, which is covering her neck and ears in the image, and a pale/white skin tone. She is wearing a backwards, children’s’ plastic red fireman’s hat and a what appears to be a black sleeveless tube dress, leaving her arms and shoulder blades area uncovered. She could also be wearing a sleeveless black shirt and black pants, but it is unclear, due to the lighting and text obscuring any possible end of the shirt. The photo has a fuzzy quality, and looks as though it was taken by a camera phone.

The photograph used gives the impression of being taken on a camera phone at a party or some other event during Halloween, as Halloween is mentioned on the poster, and woman depicted is wearing a costume of sorts. She is likely a University student, and on a University campus, as the poster was made by and for university students. I believe this image was used because the woman is revealing her shoulders, which helps to cement the message being portrayed; that rape is not caused by any amount of flirting or bare skin. Using this image gives an example of a situation that may be unfairly manipulated into supporting a rapist. The clean, white text and border are used to make the poster seem well put together and clean, and help to convey the message easily.

The poster is made to show that rape crimes are the fault of no one but the offender. This poster is targeted at the people in society that believe rape crimes are at the fault of the victim for provoking lust in their attacker by flirting or being scantily dressed.

Baking for Human Rights

Baking for Human Rights

Made the gingerbread letters, and decorated. With the excess, I made multiple gingerbread humans, male and female genitalia (though the vagina was re-purposed as a u (iced after re-purposing)) and as many gender signs as Google would provide, including Male, Female, Transgender, Gender Queer (agender), Genderless and ‘other’.

Human rights poster plans

For my humans rights poster I want to have two different posters, on in which a pair of “manly” hands are doing a typically feminine activity, and vice versa. The activities themselves will spell out gender equality. It’s going to be photographic, with overlying font.

Finished Gifs

I forgot to post them! Ah well.
This first one I liked, but I ended up submitting the second one.



I was going to animate him talking as well but I ran out of time and it looked HORRID. Anyway, I thought I would post up what I had done so you could share my pain.


Only my first attempt at animating, so I’m not too bummed that it didn’t turn out to well.

Playing with mediums

We were required to draw 5 images using pens, and then upload them to alter digitally. We had to make three A3, Portrait posters.

These are the original drawings:



And these are the posters:
