Poster for Tomorrow has a poster contest going on to highlight the fact every child's right to an education.
'Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world' -Nelson Mandela.
I found this brief quite difficult and the more time passes and more ideas I come up with the less they seem to work, so I focused on typography. The first one is large letters spelling education in different colours on top of each other, the second is education spelt out of different stationery you need for school and the third is mixing together capital and lowercase letters. The closing date has just been extended by a couple of days so if you're quick you can enter see here for more details.
