A public service announcement I did for my graphics class. We had to choose an ailment/disease, and an organization associated with it; I chose depression and To Write Love on Her Arms.

This is the first of two designs that would be used as posters.

Not sure if it's in the right category...

This is great :-D Also, I love how 4 out of 25 people are red - 16%. Yes, I sat and counted them to prove a theory XD. I wish I could put this up in my school, to inform all the people who think that depression 'isn't a real illness.'

Thanks!
And I for sure made 4/25 red. Glad someone noticed. :D
And I give you full permission to put it up in your school. Not sure how serious you were about that, but if you do give me a heads up: I have a cleaner and updated version that I could get to you. :)

Also, check out the other one.

Deppression IS extremely serious, and this is really a great way to let more people know!!!!! I love this! Great work!

Very true, very true. Many people don't realize how severe it can be. I personally haven't hit that severity, but I have friends who have and just watching them is painful.

I see you found the other one too. Thank you so much for the kind words, and for the favorites as well!

It is painful to watch. I think that's the problem, some people haven't really SEEN it.
And your very welcome!!!

Very true. I have the feeling that a lot of the times it's a foreign, far away issue that 'shouldn't really be a problem' that people have no first or second-hand experience with.

Like my brother, not until he experienced depression first hand did he realize that is serious

It stinks that it takes actually experiencing it to know how bad it can get.

Yeah, and people wonder why suicides are so prominent these days...

Graet work on this one too.:) How come some of them are red and others black...?:)

If you look to the text above the people, you will see that the word 'depression' is red. Thus the people are red, because they represent those who suffer from depression. The black ones are people who do not, and you will see that the red ones are both male and female.

Thanks for the comment and the faves. I appreciate it!

Ah right, I see. Now how did I miss that? :stupidme:

You're welcome.:aww:

That's a great idea ^.^
But I have one question, why are the people mainly males? o.0
Namelessblob's avatar
Why thank you.
Good question, but I don't have a great answer for you-that's just kinda how it turned out. I've since redone this and its partner piece. Both of them do have more females, but there still about twice as many males.

If I could get my hands on some more specific stats, maybe I could accurately visually represent the ration of males to females.

Thanks for the support!

Ah makes sense. I wasn't sure whether it was intentional for any reason, or coincidence.
And you're quite welcome, thanks for the good contribution to society ^.^
Namelessblob's avatar
Such kind words friend! It's the first time they've been categorized as a 'good contribution to society'. Thank you very much. :D
