Description
This awareness poster, commenting on the topic of illiteracy, was particularly difficult. I struggled to grasp the concept of what it must be like for an illiterate person to live in a literate world, and also how to depict that in a visual way. After much research and many concepts later, I finally landed on the notion that it might feel similar to being in a foreign land and not knowing the language. "Drowning in a see of knowledge," is meant to express that it's not that you can’t see, it's that you do not understand what you see. The visual is meant to reflect this idea through the floating, somewhat distorted, jumble of letters.
