Debt you bought this upon yourself


Description of idea

Describe your idea and concept of your work in relation to the festival outlines:

We live a society filled with debt. Living beyond our means is told to be the norm. This message is meant to be empowering. You can blame credit card companies or banks but ultimately you need to blame yourself. You have the power to live a debt-free life. If you're living in debt, well you bought that upon yourself!

What kind of communication approach do you use?

Static, digital type.

What are in your opinion concrete benefits to the society because of your communication?

Hopefully people admire this play on words and reflect upon their spending habits and realize that they have the ultimate control.

What did you personally learn from creating your submitted work?

The endless possibilities in the world of word-play.

Why is your work, GOOD communication WORK?

Legible, simple and communicative with a touch of humor.

Where and how do you intent do implement your work?

Right now this exists digitally. I usually work on the streets, having this posted on a physical wall would be impactful.

Did your intervention had an effect on other Media. If yes, describe the effect? (Has other media reported on it- how? Were you able to change other media with your work- how?)
