I designed a poster series called A Different Garden for a local non-profit organization in Miami, Florida called Children’s Resources. Children’s Resources is a dedicated pre-school for children with special needs to help enhance their learning potential through educational and therapeutic programs. Their goal is to help kids learn at the pace that they need in order to grow into adults that can live to their fullest potential. I chose to help bring awareness to this organization because I have always been an advocate for specialized education.
I learned that the Inclusion program is a type of learning method that has been explored in educational research that the school uses and sometimes is compared to nurturing a garden. I wanted the posters to emphasize the idea of being different seem positive and that even though the undeveloped plant may not be quite there, that they could eventually get to their full potential. I would love for the posters to exist not only in physical form but also online with the ever-changing digital age it could reach a larger audience at a faster rate.
