04 What’s Making You Anxious






This project was a direct response to the high levels of anxiety that my firends, and myself were experiencing at the time. I wanted to see how I could experiment with typography and colour to recreate anxiety for the viewer. 



I sourced stories from a range of people, including middle aged business men, to young girls preparing for univeristy. What I found was that regardless of a life stage, situation or problem, every single one of the anonymous participants had moments of insecurity and feeling as if they didn’t belong. 



The project was an amazing way to explore typogrpahy and the rules (and how to break them). The final print was an object that was hard to read due to its size and lack of binding, the colours made you squint and the type frustrated anyone who picked it up.
