Forgiveness

Services: Branding

5" x 7", bristol paper, tracing paper, screen print.

A stationary kit composed of envelopes for you to write to your haters or people who have an opposing view than yours. Given the current political climate and easy access to social media, online debates quickly turn into comment wars, with ideas clashing rather than people willing to understand each other. Forgiveness is one of the hardest emotions to convey when humans are hardwired to retaliate once pride or self-esteem is injured.

By creating a more thoughtful approach for people to write their perspectives, people are forced to physically slow down and think more about the emotions they’d wish to express for the receiver. To best represent two different perspectives coming together, I utilized symbols of the Democratic and Republican parties as the main focal point. The front depicts two differential sides coming to an agreement, while the back flap has a pattern composed of abstracted speech bubbles. The childlike imagery and interactions of patterns throughout the envelope reinforces the notion that many childlike arguments can be easily avoided.

"You see in the world what you have in your heart." -Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
