Circling around the general public and teenagers are the unwritten rules of driving: you don’t actually have to stop at stop signs, the speed limit is the speed minimum, etc. Don’t do that – instead we should be thinking in rules of three.
This piece spreads awareness about the dangers of texting and driving.
My entry is a graphic showing the various distractions that occur while driving. The distractions I listed include: texting, talking, eating, and meddling with the radio. I intentionally circled them around a picture of a driver to emphasize how their presence is everywhere. The accessibility of these distractions is a reason why they are so dangerous. Moreover, the picture of the driver serves to provide an example of someone keeping their eyes on the road. Behind this is a green gradient, which lists additional distractions in opaque text. Below the gradient is 3D pieces of a road. These are symbolic of how a crash makes the world feel as if it is breaking apart.
Don’t be an Octo-Driver! You don’t have eight tentacles, only two hands—and they need to be on the wheel. Anything you would need to do on the drive can be done once you have made it to your destination. Keep your eyes on the road, and your hands on the wheel!

It’s common knowledge that one of the biggest distractions for teenagers while driving is cell phone use. To counteract this, I created a poster/billboard that discourages cell phone use through its imagery. The design makes use of the autocorrect feature in messaging apps which can appeal to younger audiences.
Ocellus is an art piece that represents a soulless eye that has been taken away due to the consequences of the actions of others. Many don’t think about how their actions could impact others. Even if they believe they are good drivers or have an attentive mindset, accidents are possible to happen. And if you are not cautious of your actions, by not looking out, you will end causing the death of someone. Just like this eye demonstrates the soulless feeling, with no pupil, there is nobody behind that eye anymore because they have caused a death. The eye can be anybody, it could even be your loved ones, so if we are not careful enough and don’t watch out, well be on a path to likely endanger the life of others. Therefore, I encourage others to look around before they pass or drive on because who knows what will happen, and those seconds you spend while looking you could save the life of innocent life.
