whatever happens to you, happens to me

“whatever happens to you, happens to me” Co-opting the language of authority and bureaucracy, this piece embodies a message of solidarity and community. The lettering is all original, a subtly subversive act: typography as an art form, graphic design as protest.

The current political climate in the United States is divisive and our foreign policy is changing to follow a “go it alone” philosophy. Against this backdrop, these words resonate and reinforce the idea that we are all in this together. Other Americans losing healthcare effects me directly as well. We are used to seeing commands on signs, telling us to ‘stop’ or to ‘yield.’ This piece uses beautiful lettering to convey a more empowered and humane message.
