For college student survivors of sexual violence, holding harm-doers accountable and finding other sources of support are challenging and confusing processes. Many survivors—and especially survivors of who are people of color and/or LGTBQ—don’t seek help, and/or are unaware of their rights.

It’s Not Just Personal is a guide to the rights of survivors of sexual violence and their allies, explaining the legal options and resources that Title IX and Jeanne Clery Act provides.

The piece was designed with/for students of color and LGBTQ students. Illustrations were created to represent a dynamic and resilient community.

The new Android identity and campaign were designed and launched simultaneously with Nexus 6 and Android Lollipop in October 2014.

Paired with hundreds of Androidified character illustrations, a wide range of brand applications including print and digital billboard, newspaper centerfold, magazine spread, mobile app, television broadcast, etc., were produced to embrace the Android spirit—”getting everyone in on the party.”
