CASHRA Cyberbullying Poster

This poster was created for the 2013 CASHRA Human Rights conference, relating to the hot topic of cyberbullying.

Studies show that it is much harder to empathize with someone if one cannot physically see the other person. Oftentimes, it can be difficult for a young person to comprehend the extensive negative impact that their online insults have on their victims, with the internet acting as a barrier to feelings of empathy and consequences. This poster puts this issue of cyberbullying into perspective: that virtual actions have real consequences.

The furrow of her brow in the photograph conveys the shock and misery of a girl being bullied online. Her face is cropped uncomfortably close and is placed at an angle reflecting an off balance and vulnerable nature. The overall blue tone implies both feelings of sadness and the presence of a screen.
