are you red and yellow ???????

yesterday i was designning a banner for our magazine our slogan is " soot geel be7alo " our brand manager asked me to design something related to our slogan......... iworked my mined... does our generation have a voice????? no, we dont, we are a mute generation and we are deaf aswell... only some of us escaped the contintious attemps of making us mute while others regained their ability to hear once again........ what will these ppl do to make the rest of teh deaf generation hear????????? they would scream...... out loud till their faces become red..... till screaming hurts them and they lose their breath and become yellow but yet screaming...... they will scream till one can see the sound waves coming out of their mouthes maybe those deaf ppl will see them then try to remove the waks out of their ears....... so i fetched a pic of a young man screaming into other young man ears and i added effects to the screaming young man to make him n red and yellow with rough texture and i added an image of sound waves that indicate to a very loud voice and made them look like getting out of his mouth..... the over all was the perfect resemblence of our magazine........ they r trying to scream but well they r still trying...... not screamign enough yet but they r trying... my brand manager liked it then a colleague was passing by so the brand manager asked her how do u like this she said its coooooool but the guy seems so much in pain as if he s suffering from something physical not spiritual pain......... so the brand manager chanegd her mind n a seconed....... CANT YOU REMOVE THIS YELLOW AND RED?? ........... so it endded UP with the screaming guy n his yellow jeans shirt and the sound wave in blue... whatever...... same design ... but not in red and yellow and the focus is no longer on his face which removed the pain value from the visual that i saw was expressing the forth of his scream........... i like it aswell but i see that the red and yellow one expresses US more it suits the concept of our magazine more..... everybody liked them both........ i was kinda dissapointed and time was up so i prepared to leave... i surfed the blogging worl befor i go... i saw posts here and there....... which made me so happy..... smiled to myself and thought " gosh if my brand manager see these posts...... YES WE ARE IN RED AND YELLOW WITH ROUGH TEXTURE...... AND YES WE ARE IN PAIN "...... then i thought that i cant blame the brand manager cos she s not in red and yellowlike us my blogger friends..... you really gimme support without u knowing it...... you make me feel RED... YELLOW... and beautiful

اشمعنى أحمر واصفر، ليه ألوان الوجع عندك دافية كدة، قد كدة قريبة وساكنة؟ عموماً باشوفهم اختيارات منطقية، أخضر أو أزرق مثلاً كانت هتكون اختيارات غير مناسبة، والاسود عندي مش دايماً وجع..
عموماً أنا شفت المجلة، أول مرة كنت أشوف شغل ليكي، بجد ممتازة.. فنانة بحقيقي، ولو إنك بتشتغلي مع ناس أقوى من كدة وفيه بينك وبينهم تفاهم فكري، كنتي أكيد هتعملي شغل مش طبيعي، دوّري ع الناس دي لو سمحتي..
لطيفة قوي الغنوة اللي حاطّاها ستريم دي يا سميعة يا بتاعة البيانولا.. نهارك (أبيض)
