Project: Happy Jack Camp Visual Identity from Neal Shusterman's "Unwind"

Inspired by the extensive and beautiful graphic design work in the Harry Potter movies, I decided to dig into the world of film props for my senior thesis paper. This was an area that always fascinated me, but I had otherwise little knowledge of. This project was an extension of my thesis paper where I explored the art of prop making for movies. As a result I put together this look book with proposed visuals for Happy Jack Harvest camp ( an organization in Neal Shusterman's Unwind series), which is where the main characters of the book are taken for unwinding.

In America after the Second Civil War, the Pro-Choice and Pro-Life armies came to an agreement: The Bill of Life states that human life may not be touched from the moment of conception until a child reaches the age of thirteen. Between the ages of 13 and 18 however, a parent may choose to retroactively get rid of a child through a process called "unwinding." Unwinding ensures that the child's life doesn’t “technically” end by transplanting all the organs in the child's body to various recipients. Now a common and accepted practice in society, troublesome or unwanted teens are able to easily be unwound.
