In this project my overall goal was to present questions and use design to expand on and address those same questions. A lot of my questions revolved around why the production of food in the united states is so secluded and detached from our every day lives.
How does this affect adolescent people, are they valuing food? do they understand where it even all comes from? how can design address these issues specifically. Can design take on these tasks in a specific aesthetic of interest? Does it become a brand?
This was the end result of the project, a puzzle talking about a few pieces of fruit/ veggies and underneath is a pattern which eludes to where it comes from.

Process Sketches and Final Result
These drawings are my first ideas on paper for my logo design. drawing everything first, I then started to break it down to two that were preferred or designs I could see multiple possibilities with.

In identity design, we must be simple clean and pungent with information. Thus, the question asked how does a designer create an elegant design for the consumer but also portray the correct information. With this client specifically I was to design a logo, and keep the dignity and context of the campaign throughout the entire Identity. This campaign catered to helping animals, and stop the production of real fur in factories and help stop the demand of clothing that used these resources. My role was to help assist in designing the campaign and re configure the identity - to appear easily to all viewers so that they clearly understood the message.
