Meet the Masters / Erin Aniker
LIT Limerick, IR
Friday, 3 December 2021
On Friday 3rd December Erin gave a talk on her work followed by a workshop on PROTEST POSTER DESIGN:
Inspired by the work and posters of See Red Women’s Workshop, Erin showed the group how to create an A4 poster illustrating a message about something we are passionate about. This can be anything from human rights to climate change to women or LGBTQ rights.
The poster design can be entirely image based and/or typography based. Some slogans mostly taken from See Red Women’s workshop to use as a starting point if needed below:
- BETTER TOGETHER
- DON’T BREAK DOWN, BREAK OUT
- ALONE WE ARE POWERLESS, TOGETHER WE ARE STRONG
- DON’T LET RACISM DIVIDE US
- BITE THE HAND THAT “FEEDS” YOU
- GIRLS ARE POWERFUL
