The Face of Justice

My final project at Parsons was to craft a brand identity inspired by a chosen social issue. Electing to focus on restorative justice, I began my research by interviewing social workers with different perspectives on the justice system. After looking for common threads in my conversations, I was able to distill my observations into an actionable tenant: our justice system fails when it loses sight of the personal.

Intending to bring the individual to the forefront of the restorative justice discussion for a wider audience, I created a theoretical organization titled, The Face of Justice. What followed was a a semester’s worth of challenging, yet fulfilling ideation concerning holes in the restorative justice conversation that I could fill with good design. I’ve included just a few of these materials below.
