VA | Design Ignites Change | Freewall

my case study for Design Ignites Change is titled 'Freewall.'

This project is about creating equality among diverse high school students by inviting them to participate in a dialogue about all things worthy of love.

I have designed two main pieces to facilitate this dialogue: a message banner and message stickers.

The message banner is 5x5 feet and looks something like a quilt made of cool-colored triangles.

The messages are triangle-shaped stickers that say “I love” and come in a variety of solid, warm colors.

Students are free to write whatever they love on a sticker and place it on the banner. The messages transform the banner from cool to warm, resulting in an all-inclusive community creation.
