They Give Birth to Life

They Give Birth to Life

Xpatriate Studios, Pasadena, California, 2008


This poster is a campaign giving attention to women’s-rights violations in a country of our choosing. The content is relevant to all women who suffer from acts of violence. The goals were to create a poster that could personify the strength and power of women, despite their tribulations, and to convey a sense of empowerment. 

Juror Notes

The hand-drawn type speaks to the human struggle. It’s nice to make a poster with a pencil
