Languages Offer Peace

by Thom12


The idea that February 21 could symbolize languages as a means for peace worldwide is not a new concept, yet must be reminded for those who consider
global tensions without clear understanding.

This design uses Languages matter! in French and English as a bold pronouncement. Above these are the event name and date, plus a web of strings
from which a dove with an oliver branch frees itself. With Languages matter! as the strongest element of the poster, an enlarged symbol of the globe intensifies its exclamation point graphically. The color choice of bright grass green and cyan in the words operate as a call to action for a natural world at peace rather than a fearful war proclamation. The dove provides a sense of hope for all languages on this day to celebrate cultural differences and diversity.
