Project title:
Drawing attention to the risk of suicide: being aware of the potential suicide victims around us.

(Put name here) this is an advocacy project aimed at preventing suicides using strategically placed information tags that inform the public about how close we all are to potential suicide victims. The question I posed was how can graphic design help suicide prevention? The answer came in the form of retail store sale tags that are redesigned to contain information about suicide. This campaign targets shoppers within their environment. The information consists of percentages to help the tag fit into its environment and yet stand out for the viewer to spot. These tags include important information such as the website and a phone number to call for help or as an outlet.
