A little fun can put someone in depression states one of the advertisements developed by Mani Solanki,a student of MFA (Applied Arts) at the College of Art,Delhi University. The poster that shows a girl hiding in a closet highlights the issue of ragging and urges seniors to abstain from it.
At the colleges annual exhibition,inaugurated on Tuesday,students of Applied Arts have used the latest technologies to give out strong social messages. Two rooms of a gallery have been devoted mostly to graphics,photography,animation and posters on no-smoking,terrorism,child education,equality for women and even a poster urging parents to be less demanding when asking a child to excel in studies. Dont make education horrible for your child, it states.
The posters are part of the students syllabus and they have to come up with innovative designs for NGOs and institutions like the Delhi Police for the dissemination of social messages. Posters designed by them will be a part of their portfolio when they search for work, S N Lahiri,head of department,said.
The students work has been divided into advertisements for social messages and product designing for marketable goods. Besides a message from the Delhi Police asking people to be alert lie advertisements for the Planet M music stores,complete with a cool new logo.
