These visual interpretations combine basic design methods with alternative disciplines and skills, including photography, drawing, printmaking, film and video.

The use of paint and other alternative mediums were intended to highlight my state
of mind while experiencing this anxiety attack. I really wanted to capture the concept
of emotional distress through the use of marks and other visual references.

The design depicts my emotional state through the use of marks, typography and font
treatment. The serif font is used to highlight my tumultuous state of mind, while the
san-serif font served the purpose of framing the narrative.

This alternate design served to highlight my concern of tardiness, which was one
of the things going on in my head during the time of the attack. I sought to create a
new visual exploration that maintains the same narrative as the previous design.
