This is an independent advert against nuclear arms race.
Hope the message is clear enough.
Comments are welcome !!
I think; therefore I am
where you were when it was cold war
Life is a joke. Laugh.
the photo really work for me
Shocking, but not creative. I like the 'treat everyone equally'.
@ Doni and Martinjn.....I am not a designer....I simply made this ad on powerpoint....I wish I did better....but it is mainly about the statement .... 'will treat everyone equally''
@ Vargais....the nuclear arms race has not stopped my friend...thanks anyway..
IMHO, this is a waste of pixels...
I'll pass on the creative aspect since you're obviously not a creative.
But the message is wrong in the sens that it's because there are countries with nuclear power that there has never been a nuclear holocaust for the last 65 years. This is what we call the "deterrent theory". ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_deterrent )
To put it simply, it's because there ARE nuclear bombs that they WON'T be used.
Thus, showing actual pictures of destructed cities and deformed babies is disinformative, misguiding, intellectually dishonest and off point. No nuclear missiles or bombs have been used in any conflict since Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
We would all love to live on a planet free of nuclear armaments, but since we don't live in The Care Bears world, it won't happen anytime soon.
What you could do, is not to denounce nuclear arsenals in general, but focus on the states which have not signed the Non-Proliferation Treaty, such as Pakistan, India, China or Israel or even better, the crazy governments like those of Iran and North Korea who are suspected of seeking to obtain the bomb. Do note that if they ever did, then your leaflet would have a valid point, though it might be too late =)

@ Shawali.....Thank you for your detailed feedback. Well, I did not have anything in particular in mind about Nuclear bombs when I made up this thing. It's just that it makes a good statement, it can also be applied to any other kind of bombs and weapons in general, I hope you agree.
As far as "deterrent theory" is concerned, it is only conceptual, besides 65 years is not a long period to draw conclusions anyway. There are plenty mad people/ nations who do not care about the consequences as long as they meet their objectives, i.e. destroying their enemy.
Anyway, thank you once again for your strong and honest feedback.
@ EVERYONE......ANYONE WHO IS GOOD AT PHOTOSHOP/ CORAL AND SUCH APPLICATIONS MAY CONTACT ME. I HAVE A FEW GOOD CONCEPTS WE CAN WORK UPON TOGETHER. KINDLY EMAIL ME @ firstname.lastname@example.org.....OPPORTUNITY FOR BOTH YOU AND ME.
I might try to make it more simple, this looks more like a moodboard to me than an ad... Maybe make more than one poster, one picture for each one, but keeping the same text in al of them "it treats everyone qually". The way it is now, it wouldn't effect me.
