It Happens is a publication project created and completed for Publication Design taught by Vadim Gershman at the University of Wisconsin - Stout.
About the Project:
For the project, I was tasked with creating an informational booklet on a topic of my own choosing. The aim of the project was to take a complicated subject and communicate the objective truth about it in a way that has clear understanding, is approachable by viewers, and has a very considered and critical outcome.
When the project was assigned was around the time the #WhyIDidntReport movement was at its height. Sexual assault, sexual harassment, and rape is a very important topic that should be talked about which is why I chose to cover it for this project. The book is divided into two sections: the first section focuses purely on the statistics of sexual assault and rape, the second aims to humanize it by sharing some of the posts real victims shared with #WhyIDidntReport.
