This zine, also designed as a poster, was created with the context of a fictional commentary about an adolescent discovering the wonders of cocaine and drug addiction.
Inspired by romanticized, drug-induced movies, the context aims to put the reader onto the other side of addiction. A side that's oblivious, glamourous, and formidable. The same side that highlights drug abuse with the limelight of our culture.
The juxtaposition of relying on big pharma and being a victim of addiction through big pharma's is directly conveyed through the brazen title. I continued this message through the imagery and typeset design.
The result of the context and design is a zine and poster that's intriguing to read and look at, but is almost repentant to enjoy.
