People are not all alike...

In recent years, our expectations, dreams, and concerns are now very different from the past. Today, health, environment, economy, socio-cultural problems, and many similar issues affect our daily lives deeply; they change us. As just one of the problems peculiar to this age, with the widespread use of communication tools, relationships also become virtual.As a result, while people come together on social media, they also become individualized and experience unexpected conflicts and separations. For this reason, by centralizing a unifying concept - nondiscriminate, we invited designers from different countries to share their social and individual perspectives through their posters to take a closer look at the events that affect us. We believe that what we need in today's world is to listen carefully and understand each other better.
