The purpose of this project is to explore graphic design strategies for a broad, complex problem like bee decline. Such a global issue requires the mobilization of a large group of people, but the larger an audience the more diluted the message becomes. This project is an exploration of audience, focusing on three different groups with three different logos and campaign plans to better inspire them to action. Contained in this document are the designer’s research, design process, and finished design.
