Talking about depression is no easy task. Two complementing strategies were developed to tackle such delicate topic.
The first strategy was to bring attention through instalations and interventions placed throughout the Graphic Design building of the Savannah College of Art & Design. Those interventions reveal testimonies from people who experience depression and how they describe it.
The testimonies are impactful and sincere, and were positioned in strategic places. The goal was to impact users and make them curious. While located in crowded places, they are discrete and silent. People with depression might appear to be perfectly fine and lead a normal life for outsiders, for the disease is quiet.
The installations lead to a three-dimensional poster.
In order to understand the information, users need to put themselves in someone else's shoes.
