This is part of a series of highway billboards I designed for a National Advertising competition. I got the silver prize and a month of public display of my work. However, I am constantly haunted by the images I designed. Sometimes I think I have deciphered some sort of design method to create beauty out of whatever set of images and topics are before me. Other times I think I am going nowhere in the middle of the globe; sitting, and hoping to find a way into the first world, even if that means selling poverty by design. Lastly, I think I am very good for having achieved this state of mind until I find and see something like this and realize that my path is long and rough indeed before I can call myself a good visual communicator.
