A series of funny, anti-smoking posters and animations.

Cigarettes Kill

Cigarettes Kill is a non-traditional, anti-smoking campaign. All of the ads are funny, but get the message across.

My first design for Cigarettes Kill.
My first design for Cigarettes Kill.

I set out to make the art as light and humorous as possible. After seeing some anti-smoking ads, I felt depressed, and I don't even smoke. I want these posters and animations to make both the smoker and nonsmoker feel good, while sending the message that smoking is indeed harmful. I don't want to make the smoker feel guilty for smoking. I feel like humor is a much more powerful tool than forced guilt or sadness, so I based all of the art around humor. 

My goal is to spread awareness of the dangers of smoking in a funny, lighthearted way. The funds I get from Kickstarter would go towards:

  • Creating a series of 3 anti-smoking animations and 5 posters.
  • Putting the anti-smoking graphics on t-shirts, wristbands, etc, and then selling them.

Making animations and posters is time consuming, and then having them put on t-shirts is very expensive, and I can't do it alone. Hopefully, with your help I can make it happen!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The risks and challenges may be many. For example, there are challenges in making deadlines, coordinating with the many vendors, and packaging and shipping posters across the nation. There are challenges in using the money effectively to coordinate the campaign in the right geographical areas. And the challenge of striking a chord through humor -- humor that engages teens to reflect on thinking of lighting up that first cigarette.
