Student Debt Infographic
Poster, 18" × 24"
Client: The People's Library PDX
The People's Library PDX approached me about designing one of three silkscreens for an exhibtion about the financial crisis, and I chose to create an infographic about the rise of student debt.
I depicted the 3 main parties involved (College administrators, Wall Street, and Congress/The Department of Education) holding hands while each taking their share of the trillion-dollar student debt pie. Some supplemental statistics are included, along with a bit of Al Gore-style theatrical graph-making to demonstrate the disparity between the growth of student debt and the rate of inflation.
