BEYOND USE / Poster design


Yongshun County is a deeply poor county in China, rich in bamboo and with a long history of traditional bamboo weaving.
So it occurred to me that selling hand-made coasters from the people of Yongshun County on the MINI SO is both a continuation of traditional craftsmanship and a solution to the region's economic problems. When people buy this handmade bamboo coaster, not only can play its use value as a coaster, but also can be used as a beautiful decoration to bring people in a good mood. More importantly, the use of such coasters can contribute to poverty alleviation.This is what "BEYOND USE" means on the poster.
