Picturing Freedom

Raising human trafficking awareness



Create a poster about human trafficking, avoiding cliches and inflammatory content

Consider this: 

  • 3rd place;  Society of News Design, Illustration category

  • This poster was created for Artwork for Freedom to raise awareness about human trafficking

  • I went to a human trafficking awareness convention in Germany when I was attending a Bible school there shortly after high school. Because of that, I was especially aware that some images can cause survivors grief, and I wanted to be doubly sure that my design was not one of those.

  • After speaking with UNC professors who work against trafficking, I chose an allegorical approach. Many people who are tricked into it by people who pretend to be a "prince charming."
