Based in Savannah, Georgia, Hayli Alyce is using her designing prowess for good. Her installation, There’s Hope for the Hopeless, seeks to use design not as a predatory advertising tool, but as visual therapy. Alyce issued a heartfelt statement on her site:
“All too often in this world our graphic design skills are directed towards the advertising industry and making products or services so desirable that a person is compelled to stop, read the ad, and possibly go but the item or service. I wanted to utilize my skills in a more meaningful manner. Going beyond business and into the heart of the people.
I wanted this piece to be big, and exist in the environment for anyone and everyone to see. I wanted to affect people on a deeper level, especially the ones in the community who are depressed, suicidal, or just having a time in life where they need to hear the word hope. Hope is so important in life. Without it, we will crumble.”
