Process

Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week happens every year across the United States. Its goal is to spread awareness about hungery and homeless individuals and families and to send a call to action to those who can help others in need. Before I began designing I read over the list of events provided by the Activities Center on campus. I knew that I needed to create a design that would evoke a feeling rather than depict a story. I chose to use no imagery and instead focused on textures – concrete and tattered paper. I created icons to replace the traditional time and location words with a clock and a map marker.
