Project Description

The poster attempts to produce an aesthetically interesting image to capture the attention of the general public and teach them the basics of pompom crab’s defense mechanism. By using short and concise text to explain the crab’s habitat, defense mechanism and mutualistic relationship with sea anemones, viewers will not be discouraged from reading it. The crab was placed on a bottle cap to depict the crab’s size. The main purpose of the poster is to illustrate how the pompom crabs defends themselves with sea-anemones, their small size, and to hint to pollution in the ocean through the existence of the bottle cap.
