The objective of this project was to create a poster relating a historical quote to a current issue. My quote was by Ralph Waldo Emerson: “People see only what they are prepared to see,” and I connected it to the issue that some still do not want to acknowledge that humans are a contributing factor to global warming.  My final design was inspired by an eye chart one would encounter in a doctor’s office, however I replaced the letters with whose from the quote. My final poster included a supporting sentence: there is no scientific proof that humans caused global warming, in the  green bars that separate the lines of quote.
