This is an indexical poster inspired by a song Kendrick Lamar released in 2011. The quote reads, "Racism is still alive, yellow tape and colored lines." Kendrick is trying to do away with race as a common division between people.

The quote can have many possible meanings, but the clear one I think everyone can agree on his the fact that racism is very much still alive. I think it's great that Kendrick is saying 'Fuck your ethnicity' welcoming anyone that can relate to him and understand his story, regardless of color.

Communicating information through simple design can be very important for the users experience to go smothly. People can take in information quickly if it's designed simply. 

By 2020 it's projected that there will be more computer science jobs than there are students in the same field. In order to communicated this strongly, I created a coheive icon sytem that will be easy for anyone to take in and understand.

Thinking about ways to evoke feeling inside of people through design is important for me. If you can evoke a positive feeling, they will feel more inclined to give back for a good cause.

I wanted people to look at this poster and be brought back to their childhood when they would collect money in their piggy bank. If multiple people come together and donate just one dollar, it can easily turn into a lot of money for a great cause.

Knot System

Role 
Visual Designer

I find it really interested how the user interacts with design. This project has evolved over time as I continue to test it and improve it. It started out as trying to show six different knots and how to tie them by showing simple steps.

I also thought it would be interested to see how people interact with this as a digital piece. I tested the digital explanation and print explanation on many people and found out that 70 percent of the them preferred having it explained to them digitally.
