In one of my Humanities classes a teacher asked us to create a piece of artwork that illustrated a path to a better way of living that speaks about or like for violence vs. talking and understanding. When I started to think of ideas for this piece I tried to think about some real ways that I could illustrate a path to a better way of living. I had the notion that if this world, and its inhabitants, want progression towards a better way of living we should all be fighting and striving for parallel objectives that will benefit our economy, more importantly our global economy. This lead me to think about the positive discourse that we could be conducting as a start to the positive flow of life. I wanted to somehow communicate these ideas and thought through the different languages of the world. Being a graphic designer and having a strong appreciation for typography I knew I wanted to create a typographic piece. After realizing that it would be difficult to try and write in a different language I decided to communicate all those Ideas in one language and try to depict the world. The words that I chose to communicate these thoughts are Change, Unite, Empower, Progress, Dream, Hope, Respect, Include, and Believe. I get the impression that these words best illustrate the positive and encouraging thoughts that could in all reality lead to a better way of life. I know this piece incorporated many of the words used in the Obama campaign but neither are related to each other.
