Abstract

The homeless crisis in Venice Beach is a growing issue. The members of the community need to come together to help get the homeless off the streets and back into the workforce. The article highlights what it is like for the artist Reed Segovia living on the streets in Venice.

In response to this I created a three part design solution as a call to action in hopes that it will get the members of the community involved.

  1. Created the article spread to bring awareness to the issue.

  2. Designed environmental graphics to communicate directly with helpers and clients on the street. The plan was to organize a pop up shop event that would give the homeless access to the resources they need in order to get a job.

  3. Made posters that were to be distributed to local shop windows.
