The Talk is the publication for my senior thesis project at the Corcoran College of Art + Design.
My thesis project centers around starting a conversation about sex education in the U.S. Throughout my research, it seems that sex education is hidden away at the end of gym class or health class in many schools and isn't given a lot of attention. I believe that our attitude toward sex education informs the design quality of the materials: not well considered and in many cases inappropriate for their audience. Handout materials tend to be designed for children, with adult content, or too scientific and sterile to relate to teenagers.
The publication was printed on lined notebook paper from a Five Star notebook and sewn together on my sewing machine for an accessible, casual, zine feel.
Also included as part of my thesis project is The Talk newspaper, which is on Behance here
The project continues at http://thenewtalk.org
, including the redesign of existing sex education materials and providing the redesigned materials for free use by anyone who might be interested.
