This book is about the symptoms of eating disorders, and how aware we are of them. The book features anonymous dot to dot surveys that show results as intricate line works.

It is an illustration of the quote by Kaleel Jamison :: "Held loosely, with an open hand, the sand remains where it is.The minute you close your hand and squeeze tightly to hold on, the sand trickles through your fingers."
This collection of post cards were created for the gallery show "RAW" open to the public. Guests were encouraged to take a postcard and send it to someone to tell how they truly feel. The goal was to get secrets, and strong emotions off the chests of the guests, for them to be RAW, and to promote positive mental health through unloading negative emotions.
This project was a challenge in working with clients and provoking emotion for a cause. Each student came up with a cause and then passed that on to another classmate and thus the client>designer relationship was formed.
