Letter To Self
"Letter to Self" is a collaborative community project between myself & Stella Gelardi Malfilare (Visual Communicator).
We chose to make Zines as they are very informal, creative and individual platform to work with which also encourages students to be more hands on and involved in the design process. The students we're encouraged to bring objects from home, that they cherish or things they have found,in order to show them the value of ordinary objects. We hope to create a portrait of a time in their lives for their future selves, showing them that everything they do and make can be of value.
Stella and I begun this project in January 2016 with a group of young people who attend the Love to Learn homework club. Young people nowadays are heavily entrenched in techonolgy and the virtual world, as valuable & entertaining as this can be we wanted to encourage more tactile communication; in the form of Zines.
