The Cost of Hunger

The psychological and physical effects of food insecurity

My senior thesis project combined my love for food with my passion for social justice. This book focuses on the issue of food insecurity and its physical and psychological effects.

Food insecurity is the inability to access enough food for a healthy and active lifestyle.

The topic, while interesting to me, was a complicated one, involving dense psych studies and complex data. I wanted my audience to feel the same excitement for the subject as I did, so I developed a series of illustrations and infographics with a lighthearted, witty feel. I loved working with this content, and thoroughly enjoyed developing my illustration skills.
