This Case Study is an excerpt from a Graphic Design course I recently taught. The purpose of the case study is to: 1) describe how I arrived at the specific, chosen solution; and 2) show, step by step for the students, how I applied the design process to implement / create the solution.

I’m including this case study / these lecture notes here, in the foggstudio site, because not only do I really like the work, the process and the result; but, I’m also very proud to be able to help and give back to others as I did in this campaign. I tried to share this attitude with my students because it’s simply the right thing to do. I believe it’s just one way I can help make this world a little better. I also thought perhaps some of my current photographic clients might enjoy reading more about how I approach problem solving as it applies to messaging and systems as well as imagery.
