Women hold up half the sky

Ruoxi Jiang, Women hold up half the sky, 2021. Digital. 11” x 17”.

Woman’s power should not be underestimated, woman’s contribution to the world should not be underestimated. This is a  poster with slogan “Women hold up half the sky”. The elements in the poster is a women’s hand holds up a ball which half of it is sky and the another half is a word “women”. The “earth”, the woman’s hand and the rest of the slogan “holds up half the sky” formed together as a symbol of female “♀”. To match the text sky in this poster, I choose blue and white as the main color of the ball. The word women has a 3D fisheye effect and the contrast between blue and white, both of them makes the word stands out easily and looks powerful. I choose a slim but tall font For the texts at the lower half of the poster, which has a feeling of support along with the arm of the woman’s hand.
