When the Doorway Project at the University of Washington asked us to join them for their Pop-Up Cafe at the Husky Union Building (HUB) on Oct. 18, 2018, it was an opportunity we couldn’t pass up. With an increasing number of homeless youth in King County, the event was centered around the need to deepen the conversation on homelessness as well as housing and food insecurity, both on and off campus at the University of Washington.
We hosted a Story Station featuring some of our favorite stories from our collections. Our team members Anneke, Connor and Madison collaborated on research, visual communication elements, and advocacy materials for the event.
Brochure: Designed by Madison, the pamphlet provides county-wide statistics on youth homelessness and action tips students can take to combat the issue, no matter their time commitment. For the full brochure, click here..
Poster: We created this poster to beckon Cafe-goers over to our table.
Sticker: Students love stickers — for their laptops, water bottles and more — so we designed this as a fun giveaway.
Slideshow: Our past work with StoryCorps “Finding Our Way” and the American Refugees animated film project provided insightful stories through the narratives of young people with lived experience of homelessness. We used quotes from these stories to create a visually compelling slideshow to provide a window into their personal experiences.
