Suggestions

Submitted by ArbitraryHuman in propaganda

I'd like to make a nice propaganda poster, but I've drawn a blank for creative ideas at the moment. Do you have any suggestions for me?

I disagree with jadectrl on this. Don't pick an ideology, pick an issue. The unfortunate truth is that nobody outside the left-wing thinks highly of antifa, socialist (this is actually getting back into mainstream in American political ideologies, although not power), communist, and so on. Therefore, you must focus more on issues rather than ideology.

Find a particular ideology/sentiment you wanna get across-- antifa, socialist, communist, etc.
Then find a aspect of that general idea people usually don't understand or know about. Pick an art style you like-- and get to making your propaganda! :)
Good luck, mate!

RIP the quality, had to use MS Paint because GIMP was acting up

Thoughts?

Shit that's nice. Try to do it in KDE Krita, because this idea is really nice.

That's much better! Especially the hammer, which looks much more realistic

In the next couple of weeks, I'll have access to Illustrator in school, so I might try to make it an SVG (if Illustrator doesn't royally piss me off like it did last time I used it)
