Posters offer a universal platform for communication and have been utilised for centuries to provoke, promote, celebrate, and stimulate.
Posters as a simple vehicle for communication and have provided a powerful framework for political agendas, war propaganda and the dissemination of public information, alongside being used as tools to sell commercial goods and services and highlight events and occasions. However outwith their functional existence, they provide a canvas for millions of designers around the world.
The posters exhibited are a curated shortlist of entries to GDFS 2016 International Poster Competition which took place between June and August 2016 and received more than 3451 entries from more than 50 countries.
