During my senior year, I embarked on a design exploration project where I created a clock that symbolized the mental health struggles that deaf teens face throughout the day. Using the contrast of black and white, I was able to represent the times of day and the environments where deaf teens feel the most comfortable. The clock was not only a functional timepiece but also a visual representation of the unique challenges that deaf teens face every day.
In the second semester, I continued my exploration of deaf culture and communication barriers by creating an exhibit piece for the end-of-year senior exhibit. The exhibit piece highlighted the communication barriers that deaf teens face in education and showcased potential solutions to those barriers. I used a variety of media, such as videos, graphics, and interactive elements, to engage the audience and convey the challenges that deaf students experience in the classroom.
Through this project, I gained valuable insights into the challenges that deaf teens face and the importance of creating inclusive design solutions that cater to the unique needs of different groups. I also developed a deeper appreciation for the role that design can play in promoting social awareness and inclusion.
Overall, this project was a significant learning experience that allowed me to explore my passion for design and my interest in creating solutions that cater to diverse communities.
