Winner: Saint Xavier University Outstanding Honors Senior Thesis Award 2019
In my senior thesis at SXU, I created a series of 6 posters protesting the Muslimban, and celebrating Muslim inclusion in American society. "Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness" were created in collaboration with the Muslim community of Chicago's south side, and as the only non-muslim member of the school's Muslim association, I sought to find ways to partner with that vibrant community to communicate a message of protest while avoiding cultural appropriation. 
I photographed friends and converted those photos into traditional, hand-pulled screen prints,
and created a 24 page thesis detailing the process, available here.
The series is split into two parts, a graphic design version, where text makes clear the message of protest, and a fine art print version where I rely on the images themselves to communicate.​​​​​​​
