Masteroppgaven min. Meningen bak prosjektet var å se om jeg kunne endre folk sine perspektiv ved bruk av visuell kommunikasjon. For å fokusere prosjektet ville jeg bruke ett tema. Jeg valgte ett tema jeg vet mange ser på som kontroversielt, for å provosere respons. Tema mitt var: hvilken påvirkning har kostholdet vårt på miljø? For å ha ett stort publikum valgte jeg sosiale medier som mitt platform. Navnet for oppgaven og SoMe brukerene ble «Combat Climate Change».
