This project combines my interest in history and passion for graphic design. Something that has always fascinated me was how a piece of propaganda could convince someone to make a life-changing decision such as joining the military. The goal of this project was to explore the persuasive capabilities graphic design can have over an audience.
In an effort to learn the persuasive capabilities of propaganda and graphic design, this project analyzes the principles of design from a psychological point of view. The variety of illusions reflects the invisible and manipulative nature of propaganda. The project pulls typographic inspiration from both WWII era documents and psychological journals.
