Yes but, No but

Final University Project

Yes but, No but uses design as a mediator between the different connotations of body hair. Supported by seven months of in depth research, interviews and surveys, Anna takes this seemingly mundane topic and creates an investigation into biology, gender norms, the power of the media and political symbolism. Laid out like a debate, the publication gives readers context, places conflicting views side-by-side, and asks users to respond with their own opinion by filling out an activity page and reacting to previous viewer's responses.

Through the interactive approach and the use of visual metaphors, readers are encouraged to think more deeply about both their own views and the views of others.

By using this framework Yes but, No but demonstrates the power of design to engage viewers, question society and encourage healthy conversation.
