Debts Are Infinite

Description of idea

Describe your idea and concept of your work in relation to the festival outlines:

My concept is based on how debts are infinite, and they never end. My idea is from a personal experience with my father with debts. I have four sisters and two brothers. Due to the cost of living and our university tuition, my father kept taking debts from banks to satisfy our needs and make us live happily.

Although debts can satisfy people’s needs, but when it comes to repaying them back. It can take a decade. The issue ¬that my father had that whenever he pays all his debts, he takes another. So in addition debts’ don’t end and they increase year by year, it makes the person to take another to repay the previous debt. So in my design I wanted to keep it simple by just illustrating the infinity symbol to show how taking debt habit’s don’t easily end.

People are facing this situation every day not only my father. I hope I can graduate to help him with his payments. However, we need to aware people to stop taking debts and make them accept how to live the way they are living instead of dealing with infinite debts.

What kind of communication approach do you use?


What are in your opinion concrete benefits to the society because of your communication?

The poster aware people the truth about debts and how they can cause sometimes obsession from taking debts. In addition, my design simply shows the fact that debts are infinite.

What did you personally learn from creating your submitted work?

After focusing on this project and watching the videos that our professor showed us, it made me pay attention more on the debts or the loans that my father is taking from banks to pay our tuition fees , which made me hurry to finish college to help him in his payments.

Why is your work, GOOD communication WORK?

It is good communication work because its simple and focuses on the point it self which is "debts are infinite", on the same time it aware people from the seriousness and the riskiness of debts.

Where and how do you intent do implement your work?

I would mock up the posters around the university to spread awareness between people and specially students because they are the ones who can change the economic status and make them aware of debts and the consequences of debts. In addition, I can post the poster on Facebook because its a strong way to communicate with all of the generations due to the popularity of Facebook nowadays
