Destigmatized is a critical reflection of the stereotyping and the stigmatization of Muslims who are of Middle Eastern descent. I did this project with the hope of bringing awareness to ignorance and to end negative assumptions people may have toward a particular group of people.
The pieces in this project take on various forms, including: three posters, logo, website, and postcards. A juxtapostion of bold portraits and a simple typographic aesthetic is carried throughout the project. The people portrayed throughout the project are real Muslims in Massachusetts that I met with and interviewed.
“Graphics have long played a powerful role as a social tool- they raise awareness, apply a critique, and ultimately provoke change.”
