The War That Was Never Theirs
- A Micronesia Publication
To create a duo-tone publication and poster of Micronesia with typography.
Upon research of Micronesia, I've discovered the mark of World War 2 on this little island and decided to cover this period for the publication. I wanted to portray this publication in the eyes of a third person point of view.
In this publication, it covers why Micronesia got invaded, what happened during World War 2 in Micronesia, and what happened after the war.I wanted to express that war will never be good for anyone, that many innocent people will be dragged in the process instead, just like Micronesia.
I decided on gradients, blurs and grains to emphasise the gritty and rustic period that they have faced. These also supports the visual symbolism in some of the pages. I relied on green to mimic the military's presence in the war and a bright, saturated orange to create contrast.
Thanks for viewing!
