This thesis recognizes the similarities between the 1950s and today. While we think we have progressed, we have not. This project uses supergraphics inspired by the 1950s aesthetic in order to bring awareness to issues affecting today’s society. The supergraphics are created using 8.5 x 11 paper so that they can be easily produced and disseminated. This reinforces the urgency behind the message and allows it to get out quickly.
