Mind Matters – Mental health awareness with a visual

Mind Matters – Mental health awareness with a visual

Premise

UNI invites Architects, Visual/Graphic Designers, and the student fraternity for the third edition of its series of Graphic Design Challenges as part of its unit block, Graphis.

Challenges under ‘Graphis’ are carefully curated to bring out the best of visual communication and graphic language to educate, reflect, and inspire change with respect to pertinent world issues through visuals.
A picture is worth a thousand words, and Graphis abides by that adage, to inspire participants to try and portray complex ideas and emotions through a still image.

The competition understands the importance of efficient and effective communication in the digital age and aims to recognize innovative ideas and techniques that aim to redefine the notions guiding conventional graphic design, and foremost, create impact.

Theme

Mental illnesses affect 19% of the adult population, 46% of teenagers, and 13% of children each year. People struggling with their mental health may be in your family, live next door, teach your children, work in the next cubicle, or sit in the same aisle. However, only half of those affected receive treatment, often because of the stigma attached to mental health. Untreated, mental illness can contribute to higher medical expenses, poorer performance at school and work, fewer employment opportunities, and increased risk of suicide.

The Brief of this particular challenge is to make a poster/artwork – that either promotes mental health awareness OR visualizes the effects of poor mental health on our daily lives through metaphorical/surreal illustrations. The images should not depict any form of self-harm, but shall be something that can be shared by people to carry your message with the poster.
