Design to Shock – 80’s HIV Epidemic

I decided to do the “Design to Shock” visual assignment that task the student to ” combine at least two images (you may also use text) to create a shocking message.” I wanted to tie it to the 80s and thought of the HIV epidemic. I searched for shocking images from the HIV epidemic and decided to use this very famous image of “David Kirby, an American HIV/AIDS activist, photographed age 32 years at his deathbed.” The image is a powerful statement of the dire need to assist those with the disease and prevent its further spread, so I surrounded the image by social media messages about the prevention of HIV and some current statistics.

I do not have photoshop or GIMP, so I used power point to make a layout of the images and then saved the file as a .PNG.
