    This poster won first prize during the Beirut Design Week 2013 Poster Competition Project brief: design a poster that comes from Beirut in 2090, and sort of gives us an idea of how life in that city is during that specific time in the future. My concept: well, actually, there is no Beirut, since it had already been wiped out during the Nuclear World War of 2030. The year is 2090, the 60th memorial year since the Nuclear War, and the very few Lebanese people left are on board several space stations orbiting the now doomed Earth. They have left their land, culture and heritage behind, and barely anything is left to remind them of it. Now, for the first time in 60 years, excavators have detoxed some radioactive objects that were found at the scene of many cities (Beirut included), and the Lebanese Post Nuclear Association, in an attempt to try to replenish the Lebanese people's hazy memories, or rather, fantasies of what was their country, have announced the exhibition 'The Aftermath' that is to display several items of cultural value that were once in Beirut. Along with Dr. Zian Aderuman (what would have once been Ziad Abelrahman, but had phonetically changed over the years), this exhibition would hopefully help Lebanese people get a sense of what might have been their identity. PS: the striped-like text is what is to be known as barcoded language, scanning it on mobile devices in 2090 would help the reader of the poster to choose whatever language one wants and the text would be automatically translated into it) Read Less
