BRIGHT WORD ASSOCIATION - EMILY PATTEN
|I made a mind map of all the words I associate with charity. I then included all these words on the poster and chose the colour scheme of white and purple. The words are white to highlight them, and the background is purple to add a look of brightness and optimism, but also because in colour psychology purple gives a sense on compassion and is often used in healthcare and non-profit projects.|

OPRAH'S WISDOM - EMILY PATTEN
I first decided to create the hand holding image as that was the first thing that popped into my head when I thought about charity, or more specifically palliative care.

I then found the Oprah quote online and thought it tied in well with the message and imagery.
