Project 4: UX Design

Project 3: IllustrationsFor this project, I decided to choose three articles that I felt had similar themes of gender and equality, and to create my illustrations to not only be aesthetically similar, but connected to each other. I focused on drawings made up of a single continuous line, with one flat color fill. The first design I worked on, for the article on neurosexism, I added a fill and found that it didn't entirely fill the sketch I had made, but left interesting gaps and blanks. I liked the effect and decided to recreate it with the other two illustrations. I thought it was aesthetically interesting, but in accordance with the themes of the articles, I also found it remniscient of the gaps and holes women experience in their lives. Each illustration features an abstract but physical representation of the complications of societally enforced gender binaries, and the middle ground; a gradient of pink leading to purple and then to blue. The three illustrations are made up entirely of the same shade of green, yellow, and purple, consistency used to convey the connections between each article and each illustration.
Article One: How to Raise a Child Without Imposing Gender
Article Two: Neurosexism: The Myth That Men and Women Have Different Brains
Article Three: The Concept Creep of 'Emotional Labor"
