Yes but, No but


Graphic Design / Writing / Paper Engineering 

       Yes but, No but experiments with how design can be used as a mediator between today’s often divided social and political views.

Supported by seven months of research, interviews and surveys, this interactive publication takes the seemingly mundane topic of ‘body hair connotations’ and creates a two sided conversation about biology, gender norms, the power of the media and political symbolism. Laid out like a debate, Yes but, No but gives readers context, places conflicting views side-by-side, and asks readers to respond with their own opinion by filling out an activity page.

Through the interactive approach and the use of visual metaphors, readers are encouraged to think more deeply about both their own views and the views of others.

Yes but, No but demonstrates the power of design to engage viewers, question societal norms and encourage healthy conversation.
