Bold blue and an odd composite of objects define the process of hydraulic fracturing through visual illustration before the viewer even reads the poster. An old fashioned water gun pointed down with a drill suggests naïve child’s play with potentially dangerous tools. The word “Water War” that sits at the base of the drill labels not only highlights the local conflicts that fracking is creates but also the potential wars that could occur when endangering the national fresh drinking water supply.
This visually simple and graphic design was created to bring awareness and remembrance to the tragic public water failure in Flint, Michigan, 2016. Simple copy eludes to the everyday necessity of tap water, the free option that should not be taken for granted.
This commemorative poster is for 6/26/15 - when the United States Supreme Court ruled that state-level bans on same-sex marriage are unconstitutional, thereby legalizing same-sex marriage nationwide. The image is simple and sweet, like a Valentine's day note, in order to show the normalization of intimate love between same-sex couples.
