I wanted to use facebook as a medium to share about HIV. I thought of creating the share window.. and i did…
but that seemed a little plain on its own…
so after much thought and consideration- i decided to create a desk of a girl left behind by parents who have died from AIDS
I named her Kelly and have incorporated my first poster into this design .. the spread the word and help stop the spread one,
and the theme is - think about the ones who are left behind - because so many kids are left behind..
anyway… hope you llike it
comments and feedback are appreciated
Second Installment of HIV posters
Poster Concept 2.
I had this idea of a syringe.. which really stuck with me.. I wanted to do something that had a syringe in it. So i pondered upon the idea.. and while doing research… on HIV.. I thought about syringes and needles and how they are used to inject drugs or draw out blood… and then I had a brainwave.. I had found out how HIV was transmitted - through blood and fluids… and then somewhere in the thought process.. I came up with this concept…HIV is transmitted through blood and fluid exchange - so blood and water.. how much do you know? - aslo when blood settles… the red blood cells separates from the plasma… so yes I think the concept seems appropriate and has a lot of potential …
Poster Concept 3:
This was inspired by an image that I saw of a heart monitor line made out of cigarettes. I was also thinking about how HIV is a slow death… and how it can turn deadly at any time… without warning…. this the idea to put HIV in the lines of the heart monitor… was formed….
any constructive comments or suggestions for improvements are welcome..=)

THREADLESS AMERICAN RED CROSS T-SHIRT DEISGN COMPETITION
When disaster strikes, there aren’t enough medals to go around to honor all those who get into gear and help neighbors in need. Each year, the American Red Cross responds to more than 70,000 emergencies and natural disasters across the country. More than half a million Red Cross volunteers and 35,000 employees provide relief and comfort for victims. Each of these people make a difference for families who have lost their homes, possessions, and loved ones.
This design challenge celebrates these everyday heroes who are donating blood, serving meals, and providing shelter when the need is the greatest. With their help, communities and families are able to rebuild their lives and put disaster behind them. The chosen design will be available at Threadless, and 25% of the sale from each tee will go to the American Red Cross.
*The purpose of this challenge is to create a stand-alone design inspired by the theme, not a brand tee. Your design should not have brand names or logos on it.
THE HEART OF THE MATTER
I was thinking about the blood bags and how they store blood to give to the people who need it. So I was going to draw the normal rectangular bag… then I had this idea… why not turn the blood bag into the shape of a heart… after all the heart is what pumps the blood around the body. The heart is also symbolic of love and hope. So by donating you blood you are potentially saving a life giving someone else hope and allowing them to be with the people that they love and who love them.The heart is life… without your heart - you have no life…
There a other arrangements this design can take.. but for now.. I will stick to these three… last two have been rearranged for PP =D
"Put HIV back in the Frame”
This is my first series of posters for the “Put HIV back in the Frame” Poster competition.
When I was researching, I looked up the HIV cell.. and when I saw the cell, I immediately associated it with a dandelion. Then I thought that when the wind blows the Dandelion spreads its seeds and that could be representative of informing others by spreading the word. I had stop the spread written down on my thumbnails, and one of my teachers suggested having a play on words… thus we came up with “Spread the word and Stop the Spread” =)
I played around with inks and straws, then scanned in my creations and live traced them in Illustrator and rotated the pattern. I am quite happy with the overal result.
This poster is about domestic violence in Russia. Their government estimates that 14,000 women die each year as a result of domestic violence. That’s about one every hour. It’s more than 10 times the number of deaths in the USA. which has twice Russia’s population. Within the negative space created by the blood is half the silhouette of an iconic woman.

wow this is so awesomely clever
I was asked to design the 2011 Art Show invitation for DECV.
I played with coloured inks and then scanned them in. Experimented with a few different layouts. This is my 4th attempt. Time taken about 5 hours.
Quite happy with it. I love it. Now to see what the client thinks. =)
Sticks and stones.
Bullying is a world-wide problem. The statistics from Victoria (Australia) alone show that it is a major contributor to suicide rates. This is an issue that affects so many yet is still somewhat of a taboo subject. Bullying should never be tolerated. It is an issue that is close to my heart and I am confident is has touched many others, either directly or indirectly.
