As a graphic design student, I have learned some methodologies and skills for creating attractive works, but I hope my design is not only used to advertise a product or an event, but also can be used to reflect some social problems and draw viewers’ attention to these issues. This thesis contains a series of original posters that focus on the phubbing problems in today’s society. Phubbing, as a new word, is phone snubbing, which basically defines the habit of ignoring someone in favor of a mobile phone. In my posters, I present phone snubbing behaviors around me and try to appeal to people to break free from phubbing and enjoy the time with their families and friends. In this work, vector art was employed to complete my series, because vector graphics realistically emphasize the phubbing subject in my posters, and it will help my posters to be exhibited without any loss of quality in the reproduction. In addition, digital manipulation techniques have also been employed on my reference photos to get a strong composition in each poster.
