The Spectacle

Senior Thesis

Objective:

Conduct and compile research to design a poster and editorial that questions and explores the reasons as to why, historically, a Latin American immigrant might pursue a life in the USA.

Solution:

Using graphic design as a tool of mass communication, The Spectacle aims to reveal hidden connections between inequality and sociopolitical institutions. This project uses designed information in a way to critique ideologies created by systems of dominance such as colonialism, neoliberalism, and consumer culture. My experience in communities of immigrants is what has led me to observe, question, and challenge the history and appeal of the western society. The end product resulting in an easily digestible poster and book which goes further in depth to share information, realities and cites sources.
