Project Overview /

I have chosen a cause, coping with depression, and have created a magazine called Lighten with a booklet insert, plus a speaking event to draw attention to this cause. I chose this topic because there are a lot of people who are depressed and they often try to commit suicide. My deliverables provide support for those in need.

Design Approach /

My magazine and booklet design draw attention to the disease of depression and help depressed people gain optimism in their lives. I used warm colors and the geometric typeface Avenir because they have a positive and relaxed feeling. I provide stories from celebrities with depression to show people pathways for surviving depression. I want to communicate strength and hope to my audience and give them courage.
