The child abuse poster only kids can see

A Spanish charity has unveiled an innovative new anti-child abuse poster that only kids can see.
The Anar Foundation image uses a special printing technique more commonly seen on novelty postcards to ensure its important message is only visible to children.
A child looking at the poster would see a bruised kid with the message "If someone hurts you, phone us and we'll help you" alongside the foundation's abuse helpline number, while adults only see a picture of a scared child.
The foundation said the poster was designed to pass information to children who might be accompanied by their abuser.
"It is a message exclusively for them, hidden from adult's eyes," advertising agency Grey Spain said.

The image displays differently depending on how tall the viewer is. Those from a lower vantage point, for example children, would see the helpline number, while adult-sized individuals would just see a warning against abuse.
"It uses a lenticular to combine two images, and we have calculated an area visible only by children under 10 — and a warning for adults," the agency said.
