What differences have you found between designing posters as part of a campaign and designing one on its own? “The biggest difference is whether there is a purpose. Campaign posters are usually designed with a specific purpose such as advertising products, introducing a service, and telling information. When I was designing posters as a self-project, they became frames to contain my artworks. They were produced to show my visual expression rather than communicating with a specific goal. This made me try visual experiments such as combining unconventional ideas and expressing personal interests in a visual way.”
