Bad News Daily started as a way for me to try and process all the bad news stories I felt I kept reading all too often, and wondering how my skills as a designer can ever relate or make a difference in the world and to these issues in some way. I believe one of the most important things in the world is education and awareness, so I decided to turn these news articles into posters that could one day take the place of headlines and magazines that pedal less important information. Perhaps someone who has better skills than I to take on these issues will notice and be inspired to take their own action.

The Bad News posters are designed to be slightly aggrivating and uncomfortable. Uncomfortable use of grids and slightly off typography, angry or distorted artwork. The most important aspects of these posters is the headline and artwork grabbing attention, and then the information from the article and where more can be read are secondary for those who are actually interested.
