So I'm trying to design a poster (A decal, actually, about 8.5 X 11 inches) to stick on some of the toolboxes at work to encourage the use of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment; safety shoes, respirators, fall protection, etc.... it's an industrial site). I Google "PPE Poster" for inspiration... and all I get are images that are either too cartoony, (some using Simpsons characters, actually), too "stock photo", or look like something out of the 70s or 80s (i.e. like the same ol' posters that have been used for the past 30-40 years).

I'm just kind of... well... flabbergasted. I was kind of hoping for something more like a poster for HALO or something, or something even more Struzan-ish, I guess.

Any opinions? Do you think a poster made more like a video game box or movie one-sheet might actually work to encourage people to use PPE? Or would it still just look cheesy?

Oh, and make sure you wear your safety gear.

(edit) Ok, so I went with a meme ("Keep Calm and Carry On") and photoshopped a version of Flagg's Uncle Sam's "I Want You" poster. It's not too imaginative I know, but it's slightly better than what I'd seen out there. I'm still looking to do something a bit more dramatic...

I admire you and hope to encourage your passions. You have a lot of skill with your cosplay that you've worked hard on developing, and you're a beautiful and talented model, which is also a lot of hard work. You're a parent, and I know how tough that can be sometimes, (I've got a 17 year old daughter myself). You're gracious and kind to me, and so I want you to know that I appreciate it, and reciprocate in kind. Thank you for sharing your hard work with me, and for being the Amazing Nivi. :D :heart:
