Johnny Selman is an artist that found a new and interesting way to motivate readers to catch what’s happening worldwide. In his own words:
My goal with this project is to bridge the knowledge gap between global current events and the American public. I will do this by creating a more visually interesting vehicle for the news, use a credible news source (BBC), and promote, market, and network. I will design a poster a day for 365 days in reaction to a headline on the BBC news website and update this website everyday with the poster and the accompanying news story. By creating posters based on the news stories I hope to compel my audience to look into the article and eventually stir a larger interest in world news with the American public.
An interesting example of his work is the news about overfishing that you can see at the BBC x 365 website, but there are a lot more to review.
