Tobacco or Health: Choose Health

Title

Tobacco or Health: Choose Health

Description

The headline in this poster presents a choice between tobacco and health, while an abstraction of a human head chooses flowers over a cigarette.

In 1988, the World Health Organization celebrated its 40th anniversary and the first World No Tobacco Day (WNTD), a global event where smokers around the world united to break free from their dependence on tobacco.The image in the poster signifies an opposition between smoking and health (or smoker and nonsmoker), suggesting a choice for one is a choice against the other.
