NHS Stop Smoking Poster
April 02, 2013

This poster was created for NHS Fife for their Stop Smoking campaign. The idea behind this poster was design a poster campaign for couples who want to quit smoking.

Stop smoking posters and campaigns have been done a million times before but most of their themes are dark and sometimes related to death. So for this campaign I wanted to try something a little different. For this poster I put across an image of “If I/we quit smoking together, life will be better”. That’s why I created an illustration of a wedding couple who threw away their cigarettes and look extremely happy. I also chose a bright, bold and colourful (my style) for this poster so people will notice it straight away.

This poster was also quite interesting for me to create as I’m an ex smoker myself. I went from smoking 5-10 cigarettes a day to completely quitting many months before I decided I wanted to have a child. I’m very much the kind of person that if I decide I want to do something I will be absolutely do it. Not several years on I don’t miss smoking at all. I’m healthier, happier and I have more money to spend each month. The most important thing though is I have a really healthy and happy baby. So if you’re a smoker and you’re reading this blog post, please, for you and your family’s sake, quit smoking!
