Put Yourself in Their Shoes is a series of ‘social posters’ by Irish graphic designer Christopher Scott. Inspired by the works of Stefan Sagmeister, Christopher blends elements of nature, man-made objects and certain props to deliver a strong typographical statement. Sometimes thought-provoking and sometimes shocking, these posters aim to stir-up the audience and bring them face-to-face with the harsh realties of life that millions confront everyday. Featured here are 7 of his posters that deal with a variety of topics ranging from fear to life and from the homeless to hope. This series is an inspiration that encourages students to get away from the computer and experience how expressive and powerful graphic design as a medium of communication is.
