Rachel Nielson Sevy – Butterflies for Better Days

Rachel Nielson

Visual Communication Emphasis

Butterflies for Better Days is based on two symbols: the semicolon and the butterfly. The semicolon is a symbol for suicide prevention, and the butterfly comes from self-harm prevention and is a symbol of mental health awareness. For this project, I combined the two by making butterflies with semicolons for the body. I designed three butterflies and I used the designs to make various products including t-shirts, stickers, phone cases, and wall hangings. I built a website and designed it with CSS as a place to share information and sell these products. I also created social media accounts to share information and spread awareness both of mental health and of Butterflies for Better Days.

Here is my project showcased:
