This page features work I created for Unbound’s International Poverty Simulation, which aims to show participants what it’s like to live in poverty. In the simulation, participants are given various scenarios and have to learn how to handle the finances of an impoverished family. The hope is that participants leave with a better understanding of the everyday struggles that families involved with Unbound encounter. I led the art direction and completed all of the graphic design for this project. I started testing out some potential new avenues for graphics with this project - you can see the progression in the Donor Brochure in the Work section.

Here are two posters I made to help display relevant information for the simulation.
Here are the two scenario sheets to help guide the participants through different tasks and priorities related to the family’s finances. The first sheet also has examples on the back for reference.
