The goal of this project was to hand render an image that represents one of the articles from the Universal
Declaration of Human Rights.
It had to be easy to understand and engaging.
To determine the essence of my article I brainstormed all words and ideas associated with it. I
took the most critical ideas that

being universal was sketched into
low-fidelity drawings that conveyed the idea while using the simplest graphical forms.
These sketches then went through critiques to determine the most effective graphics and
the lock was chosen as
represents protection. In addition, the earth was placed in the center to represent the coverage across
the world. The strongest
sketch went through a refinement process, to determine how simple it can be before it loses its
The final rendering was increased in size and done by hand.
