I created this poster as a war/fighting poster. Although I view it as a sarcastic commentary on war since it seems like invading other countries and continuously being at war is "the American way", I also like the fact that it could be ambiguous as to its intent. I tried to use a visually engaging and eye-catching imagery in order to draw people's attention to it and subsequently the text that accompanies the image. Additionally, the choice of black background really helped it stand out against the white posters and flyers that often plague the cork boards. Also, the placement of the poster, such as on top of the yellow flyers, was purposefully invasive to draw attention to it.
