Celebrating female characters on Deep Space Nine at the series' 25th anniversary. Taking inspirations from both 90's sci-fi and latest design trends, I created the brand identity for Jadzia Dax and Kira Nerys.

The 1989 Tiananmen Protest, commonly known among Chinese as "June 4th" is a highly sensitive topic in China. No media is allowed to mention it; individuals refrain from talking about it in public. Many students, even after coming abroad to study, have not heard about this historical event.
The younger generation who grew up after 1989 did not experience or learn about it from textbooks, how they heard of it in the first place interests me.
I'd like to collect personal stories from those who grew up in the 90s and transform them into illustrated postcards.
Banned books are so sensitive! They can't even cross the Chinese border! So the students made their own, and disguised them as salted fish.
Original idea developed from a comment in Tianya forum on how to smuggle banned books, as I remember it:
"I once packed banned books in between my mother's salted fish she bought from Hong Kong and no one found out.." -unknown netizen

Banned books are publications that cannot be published in China because of their political content.

Sweatshops in Chinatown are no secret among the Chinese-speaking communities. However, it is not known to the general public, and immigrant workers are afraid to fight for their rights, especially undocumented workers. What can an activist do? Is there a safe way for workers to tell the public who are abusing them?
1) Protest Anonymously:
-Double-sided business cards: A side "Who made your tea?", B side "She makes less than $7/hr."
2) A self-help website for workers
-Workers can rate sweatshops they've worked for
-Customers can see if the business they will be visiting is a sweatshop
-Visitors can read daily news/personal stories about sweatshops in Chinatown
