Presented by the Massachusetts College of Art and Philadelphia University, this gallery really shows how powerful design can be when applied to some of the world's more pressing issues.

I enjoyed browsing through these poster designs. I enjoyed a lot of the concepts and visuals that these artist came up with. I mostly enjoyed reading the statement for the literacy campaign with the child sitting on the television. The artist stated that they wanted to challenge themselves and design a poster conveying a strong message without using any words. I thought that this was very interesting. It seems as though a lot of ideas would be stronger if they were able to be conveyed with imagery and without using any words at all. It struck my curiosity, and I thought to myself that putting restrictions on how you concept can be extremely helpful and can bring about stronger and more creative ideas. Anyways, thanks for the link, I really enjoyed it. I learned a lot...and isn't that the point?
