Design Is Change – CDS

Children’s Disaster Services is the non-profit organization I decided to create my ten posters on. CDS help respond to traumatized children across the nation after natural disasters. They provide children with individualized attention, encourage them to express themselves, thereby starting a healing process to full recovery.

To start off, I knew I wanted to work with an organization that related themselves to assisting children. I began with a couple of sketches and the majority of them were too straight forward in my opinion, I wanted something with a deeper meaning and would make my audience think a bit more. My organization is always there to provide to these children, then began the creation of the large metal pot as a symbol of “giving”.

In these posters, I have illustrated what CDS provides to these children inside of a large metal pot, often used to feed hundreds after natural disasters.

Human Rights Poster

Education shall be directed to the full development of the human personality and to the strengthening of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms.

Saving Sage Animal Rescue Foundation is the non-profit organization I decided to do my posters on. They help give home to dogs, cats, and various other small animals. They also have fostering, volunteering, and educational programs to raise awareness and help the animals.

I decided to base my posters on old propaganda posters as well as Bauhaus inspired artwork. I did so because those old posters were usually bold and straight to the point, so that anyone could understand the concept easily. Since these would appeal to the general audience, I did not want to put too much concept on them so I made them very bold and with a single word that dealt with adopting, fostering, and educating.

Music4All is a non-profit organization that focus on hands on training of everything music to children with and without disabilities as well as adults. The founder, Britael Benitez is a Dj that wanted to give his time and music experience to people of all ages. This organization aims to help children and adults get motivated, cope with challenges, helps them to bond and develop positive attitudes.

I worked together with Music4All to design impactful concepts using colors and shapes to create a sustainable solution. Each poster was created by using the different equipment used by DJs. The bright colors were inspired by the neon color lights that DJ’s use to give an exciting environment for its audience. I believe that the bright colors and faces will capture the eye of my audience. My goal is to bring awareness to this organization even just by a little with these posters. These posters were made as part of the Design is Change project and were donated to the organization, Music4All.
