" Take One"Poster Design

The visitors take an oragami butterfly to take home. On the outside is a unique pattern, on the inside are tips and tricks you can do at home to help the cause. 

With this artist installation, I wanted to use design to communicate an important message: Monarch Butterflies are important, and they are going extinct. 

I not only wanted this installation to be informative, but I wanted it to be interactive

As the visitors take the butterflies off the wall, the numbers slowly diminish.

At the end of the night, almost all the oragami butterflies are gone, leaving

a visual representation of what is happening in real life.
