Sic Semper Governor: Infographic
Created in the heat of the many 2019 Virginia politician controversies. Analyzing apologies and statements post sociopolitical misconduct.
The Sic Semper Governor infographic was inspired by this poster design created based on personal experiences and frustrations with Virginia politicians. Being away from Virginia while I was at school in Rhode Island and having to explain where I’m from in the heat of the controversy was a troubling issue for me.
“Aren’t you from there? What’s your take? What’s happening to your state?” During the thick of the controversies, it felt like a daily point of discussion.
I felt this strange mix of having an enormous amount of pride for where I’m from while being ahshamed for the political situation.
I would think to myself… How can I convince you that we aren’t all like them? That these representatives don’t represent me?
The poster design was a therapeutic point of creative entry which I later used to make the infographic, where I was able to be more analytical and a lot less emotionally charged than the poster.
