Congratulations Terry!

worthy.

AUSTRALIAN POSTER
BIENNALE 2013

The Australian Poster Biennale 2013 :
AGDA collaborated with UNICEF to
create the theme for this year's Australian
Poster Biennale, which received
responses from around the globe,
including Turkey, Poland, China,
Ecuador, USA, England, Greece.

Designers were invited to create posters in
response to the theme
"A mother's life is precious"
The 40 finalist posters dealt with a
range of issues surrounding women's
rights, women's health and maternal
mortality.

What I like about these pages is that they
provide links to larger images and
Rationales provided by each designer. It
is good for students to see the reasons
why the designers used the images in the
posters.
