Social issue design is sometimes defined as
a process that contributes to improving human well-being and livelihood. For the past decade
I have researched and designed several social issue campaigns. Through my process I try to express my ideas sometimes with no or very few words.

In 1854, Jewish Family Service of Los Angeles (JFS) was the first charity to be established in Los Angeles. Today, more than 150 years later, they are proud to offer “a family of services” to nearly 100,000 individuals every year.
Through their programs and services, they strive to meet the trials of poverty, hunger, domestic violence, homelessness, substance abuse, families in crisis, disabilities, and aging with dignity. This compassion grows out of deep roots in Jewish values—“tikkun olam,” or healing

In 1960 Letraset announced its instant lettering dry transfer product. This was the first ever sheet of "Dry Transfer" - the product with which Letraset has become synonymous. Dry transfer represented a true revolution in graphic design lettering could be done quickly and easily by anyone and demand was enormous. What could so easily have become a "gimmick" became an essential design tool.
As the 90's approached, the digital age was starting to take shape and less designers
were using dry transfer causing sales to drop
because the computer was a more faster way
to produce results. Design studios began to throw boxes of dry transfer away and Letraset became the lost art of typography.
BEGSONLAND explores the world of Letraset in the form of a typographical dream and gives back to the handmade dimension approach to visual communication. Designers and architects in the past have used this material in extremely strict parameters. BEGSONLAND breaks that mold where our eyes are free to explore and our minds enter the state of imagination.
It’s 1969 in Laurel Canyon, Hollywood. In the eucalyptus scented canyon you can smell the bohemian spirit as you hear the music blow through the hills.
This is the inspiration behind AMORROMA's Cruise Spring 2014 Canyon Collection which was launched at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami. Resort dresses and bikinis functioning as crop tops lend to the easy
feeling of the Hollywood hills in its hay day.
What makes this collection unique is that graphic designer Craig Holden Feinberg of Begson has taken photos directly from LA's canyons and given them new life on swimwear fabric. Designer Heather Roma then mixes Begson's prints with imported Italian materials including natural cotton lace and knit flowers covered in paint and incorporates muted tie-dyes produced in the heart of LA’s garment district.

Aaron J. Miller, MD, MPA is board-certified in General Pediatrics and in Child Abuse Pediatrics and currently splits his time between consulting for the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services and growing BRANCH. He recently completed 10 years in the Bronx coordinating with police, prosecutors, social workers, psychologists, and child protective services to provide evaluation and treatment of children in cases of suspected sexual abuse, physical abuse and neglect.
Dr. Miller’s published research includes the largest study ever of the criminal prosecution of child sexual abuse within a given jurisdiction, and a recent study on the efficacy of a brief teaching intervention on child sexual abuse for physicians in Malawi.
Dr. Miller’s international development work began in 2009 when he brought a prosecutor and social worker with him to Malawi and partnered with community leaders in Blantyre and Zomba to provide two weeks of trainings and capacity development for doctors, nurses, police, magistrates and social services on the diagnosis and treatment of child maltreatment and domestic violence. Dr. Miller’s team returned for two weeks in 2010 with funding from UNICEF.
As a result of these first two trips, in 2012 Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital in Blantyre was able to open Malawi’s first One Stop Center for Child Abuse and Domestic Violence. The UK’s Department for International Development (DFID), UNICEF and UNFPA have committed to replicating this success by building additional one-stop centers across Malawi.
Encouraged by the significant progress achieved in a short time period by leaders abroad, Dr. Miller knew that these successes could only be sustained if grounded in long-term partnerships, where he could dedicate more time and resources to meet the evolving needs of the community. To help ensure this long-term success, Dr. Miller created BRANCH – Building Regional Alliances to Nurture Child Health – in July 2013.

This compendium showcases the extraordinary cutting-edge work of 100 of the world’s most progressive graphic designers, from the hard-hitting political messages of Jonathan Barnbrook to the lyrical digital compositions of Peter Saville to the iconoclastic imagery of Stefan Sagmeister. Alongside the array of visually stunning and thought-provoking advertisements, CD covers, posters, packaging, websites, and corporate identities are texts by each designer expressing his or her individual approach to graphic design practice as well as personal insights into the motivations that lie behind the work. An accompanying introductory essay highlights the current issues surrounding graphic design practice, from the ascendancy of digital tools to the amorality of consumerism. By presenting a provocative survey of the latest, most experimental and forward-looking graphic design from around the globe, this exciting book provides a unique and totally unforgettable snapshot of where the discipline stands today and hopefully offers directions for its future.
Ten years of ideas, projects, personalities, events and experimentation, through a gallery of images, videos, interaction and music that tell a contemporary story.
“Fabrica 10 - From chaos to order and back” is not just a book published by Fabrica or about Fabrica, it’s the result of an extraordinary and unique vision of the world, a product of so many visions that have found their expression at Fabrica. Not just images therefore, but also objects, videos, music, installations and texts that have charted a unique and recognizable way of communicating that, while representing itself also represents the creative peak of our times.
“Fabrica” states Luciano Benetton in the preface, “ was created, to capitalize on the value of a type of communication which goes against the current, to unite culture and industry, to apply a typically entrepreneurial concept: the ability to risk by investing in ideas and creativity. The initial idea, developed together with Oliviero Toscani, was also a bridge between the visionary dream -a laboratory where the communication of the future could be planned-and concrete experimentation in the field. Between utopia and the reality of a world in chaotic transformation.”
Founded in 1994, Fabrica is a unique place – virtual and real at the same time – that lives and changes through a continuous exchange of experiences. Fabrica has, over the years, been host to hundreds of young emerging artists from all over the world, with their wealth of cultures and experiences, who have mixed among themselves and with some of the most important personalities in art, culture and communication.
Fabrica’s story is a story of the creative process itself and not of its results. The predominance of ideas over materials, tools, structures, forms and methods, as an undeniable vehicle for creation, is the true mark of Fabrica. "FABRICA 10 – From chaos to order and back" narrates the past as a process that is still in the course of developing.

Krvkurva is a group of artists and graphic designers that have created the La.Ga bag.
Shaped like a large teardrop, the bag is constructed from semi-rigid Dupont™ Tyvek®. Thinner than one millimeter and weighing less than 40 grams, this bag is able to hold up to 55kg easily, while still being machine washable. With use, the bag becomes softer and more malleable, while being radiation resistant and recyclable.
Each bag is given a unique artistic layout by a different guest designer, in limited runs. Past designers have included artists and graphic designers from Spain, Portugal, Argentina, Brazil, the UK and USA.
Album cover designs have always been apart of my visual process. Simple, modern, and eye-catching my designs tend to express surrealism and pop culture.
