Abstract/Artist Statement

Since 1993 more than 400 impoverished women and young working girls have been raped, tortured, and then murdered, and more than seventy women are still missing in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. There has been an inadequate level of support to find the people who are responsible for these tragedies and bring them to justice. The language barrier and lack of resources have made it difficult to advocate for these women and their families. A possible graphic design solution could be creating a series of images to visually communicate the existing problem. These strong visuals could be employed to help overcome any potential language barriers by reaching audience members who speak English or Spanish. I will apply communication design with the use of typography and imagery to multimedia compositions and/or print media. By creating these design applications I will to be able to raise public awareness, emotional support, and urge financial aide
