I Believe Christine
In September 2018 America watched the Brett Kavanaugh hearings as they tore Christine Blasey Ford apart. It divided America even more than it already was. The poster resembles the multitudes of people who believed Christine Blasey Ford in the repetition of "I Believe" as a pattern behind the prominent typography "Christine." It's black and white to represent the black and white mentality most people have with sexual assault. The majority tend to believe that one person is either wrong or innocent, whether that's the victim or the perpetrator. But these issues are never black and white. They are extremely gray. I printed 20 copies and hung these 11x17 posters around LoDo and watched from a distance in different areas to see people's reactions. What I heard was fascinating but also depressing. It was a great conversation starter and I loved getting to privately witness how people engaged with my posters and the conversations that sparked as a result. I'm passionate about using design for social justice and activism. I would love to be able to incorporate my passion for social justice and design into client work some day.
