Don’t hide the knowledge, Creative Commons

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

For our Design Assignments, one of the options we could choose was to make a Creative Commons poster. I love the idea of Creative Commons and figured this was a perfect assignment to do.

I made this image through PowerPoint, which to my surprise over the past two weeks has been an extremely resourceful tool. This really is a learning experience! I found an image that was under a Creative Commons Right and allowed me to alter the photo in a specific way. I used “text box” to insert the text and the Creative Commons logo.


This image was chosen specifically because I want to send the message that creativity should never been wasted away or hidden because of restrictions on copyright. Creative Commons allows for the removal of those restrictions and gives people the freedom to express themselves while sharing their art globally. Children hiding behind a huge umbrella symbolizes what potentially could happen to future generations of the internet doesn’t expand itself creatively and knowledgeably by peoples insights.
