Title:‘Most Waste Has a Second Chance, Your Ocean Doesn’t’

A promotional poster designed to raise awareness and encourage businesses to stop buying single use plastic (straws).

The collage design that this student produced makes a powerful and clever statement about the impact that single use plastic is having on our oceans.

The poster has proved to have made an impact as after seeing this design, the food and drink employer that the student works for switched from purchasing single use plastic straws to an environmentally friendly alternative following seeing this poster campaign.

Module: U101

Claire’s concerned message comes across convincingly in this beautifully handmade collage poster design. The jury was impressed by the attention to detail and effective communication of the message.
