I used an umbrella as the main icon for my infographic as a symbol of shelter. It is a sign of reaching out to others who are left vulnerable and alone to deal with suicidal thoughts. The rain also comes in the form of pills and razor blades, which are objects normally associated with suicide.


Some comments during critique include that there might not be enough breathing space, hence making the infographic a little bit messy and lacking visual hierarchy, which I agree. This assignment was challenging in the sense of consolidating data and information into bite-sized, digestable chunks. However, it was also fun to see my classmates’ works and see the difference in styles and approach that we took.
