The purpose of this research is to study storytelling design in a different way. By analyzing Nineteen Eighty-Four (1984), the way in which the story was designed differently from its original allows for easy access and fast communication.  Nineteen Eighty-Four (1984) is political literature written in 1949 and discusses a dystopia in the future; a horrible dictatorship that works due to the normalization of the abnormality of that system in the minds of the people.  According to the ideas explored in the book, as well as the study of authoritarian regimes in history, it can be seen that the series of events represented in the book may have similarities to events that occurred in the real world. In a society that claims to be a democracy, it cannot be denied that there may be underlying structures of dictatorship present and how this may make us feel uncomfortable is an interesting discussion point.  In conclusion, the design of this political poster campaign aims to show the ways in which we can prevent propaganda adversely affecting our thoughts and actions. Making people aware of the tricks and methods of authoritarianism that may be working around us, it is an approach to telling stories through six different posters for easy exposure.
