In class we were faced with the task to create a mantra that we live by. The goal was to have the design echo the meaning of the mantra. Materials and end product were up to interpretation.
For this project, I challenged myself with the task of bringing new depth to the words "Rise Up" by creating a three dimensional light-box so the words and people were actually being lifted. I incorporated hand holding and people being physically lifted to symbolize we always get ahead baby helping each other.
I illustrated the people and hand lettered the typography. The piece is cut by hand and has seven layers of design to create depth of field. I installed led lights in the back panel to illuminate the design.
The project stood out in the end and has been featured at the University.
