Conflict.. is it needed?
We had to choose a conflict that is happening in the world today or has happened in history.
I chose to look into the conflict of gangs and why there is so much hate, what keeps the gangs seperated and is it needed? I researched into the top 20 of american gangs wanted by the FBI. Then spent alot of time in the library reading about gang culture and what makes a gang etc etc. This really helped me come up with my final design. I noticed that in the 5 books I read all of them mention how each gang has their own "territory" and if you cross that line then there's trouble. So I wanted to create a way of showing areas/territories owned by gangs. I chose 2 of the most known gangs in america at the moment "the crips" and "the bloods" one of the traits their known for is the colour that divides them the crips are blue and the bloods are red. I wanted this to be my main focus. So the next path I went down was trying to show territories. I did this by designing stickers which would be placed around certain areas of the city which you will see soon. Then I wanted to design a recruitment poster, but for it to be quite secretive not shouting out as they wouldn't want authorities knowing. Also these posters would be placed around the city by the gangs themselves.
