Gift of Sight · Gift of Hope/ 视觉的礼物 · 希望的礼物

两年前,参加了《新加坡全国眼科中心海报比赛》做的一张海报,题目是《Gift of Sight》/《视觉的礼物》。
那时我花了一个星期的时间去构思,第二个星期去想要用怎么样的方式来呈现我的想法。虽然用了好长的时间去完成,但是我认为是值得的。

在那第一个星期里,我从维基百科,自由的百科全书里读到海倫·凱勒的故事,我哭了。我被她坚强的意志力所感动。
在她年幼时,因意外疾病而引致失明及失聪,但她没有因为那所谓的“缺陷”而放弃她对生命的热爱。在她的生命里除了她的父母之外,
还有一位功不可没的老师。她就是,安妮·蘇利文·梅西。这位老师用心的教导海倫如何运用手语和发声,把活在无声和无视觉世界的海倫带到能与人沟通的世界里。
我心里面想:“谁说失明人士看不到”他们不是用眼睛去看而是用心、用感觉和他们的想象来“看”这世界。

这张作品让我得到了第二名。

----------------------------

简要说明:
在这海报里母亲正在读故事给孩子听,孩子好奇的问母亲大象长什么样?母亲耐心的解释他的问题。孩子虽然失明但他们也会对“外面的世界感到好奇。我们每天一张开眼就能看得见。在很多时候我们已经把能看见认为是必然的。对于看不见的孩子我们却忽视了。

大象虽然是在陆地上最大的哺乳动物,但它们天性温顺是标准的群体动物。其实我们也像大象们一样,在这个社会上都需要彼此的存在与支持。

在我的海报设计里,我运用鲜艳的颜色和字来呈现我想要表达的感觉和孩子的世界。我们的眼角膜捐镇,不仅会是他们的礼物也能带给他们对未来的希望,让获益者能有机会看到这美丽色彩的世界。

运用黄色的点来呈现盲文字母,这些点拼凑出来的字母代表这《视觉的礼物 · 希望的礼物》。《希望的礼物》是我特地加上去的,我认为只要有希望,一定能看见曙光。

Brief explanation:

For this poster i started with a child asking his mother what is an elephant?
His mother patiently answering his questions.
I wanna catch the attention of the viewers, on how a blind child may curious to know.
Although  they cant see but they can have lots of curious on what the world look like.
Which a lot of us are taking for granted on what we see everyday.

The reason why i choose an elephant is because although elephants are the largest land animals but,
they are very gentle and they live as a group. Just like us, living in this society together. Helping one another.

I use colorful color for the illustrations and typographies, because i want it to be more child-like.
To bring out the concept of GIFT and Hope and to show that with the donation they can see beautiful things around us.

The yellow dots represent braille alphabet — GIFT OF SIGHT and GIFT OF HOPE.
Using braille alphabet beside design, is to let more people to aware on how blind people read.

I added the word GIFT OF HOPE as i feel with hope there will be chance and future.
Chance to see and future to hope.

2nd Prize
