What is Graphic Design For?: Type- Before I Die.

'Before I Die' is an urban project, set up in New Orleans by artist Candy Chang, of which I was directed to by tutor John. A great design, getting the community involved and using public space to really create an inspiring conversational arts piece, whereupon chalks were distributed for people to write what they hoped to achieve 'before they die', with the rain washing away the chalk writing for new ideas and hopes to be written down the next day.

A great design feature for any audience- all capturing different hopes, dreams and aspirations, highlighting the differences and similiarities within cultures and social groups.

A really inspiring project, and a great use of brownsite space- really captures John's "THINK BIG" outlook- showing that big ideas can be achieved in reality.
