Words can hurt / visual communication

Words can hurt

This poster combines the graphic of a mouth and the shape of an arrow to implicate that words are oftentimes lethal weapons. We may unconsciously hurt someone else because of the words we say. Therefore, the subtitle of this work is a quote from Francis Bacon, “People think they are rational domination speech , but why sometimes dominate but rational speech .”
