BACKGROUND

 

The brief for this project was to delve into a political topic and create informative outcomes in the form of a risograph infographic and an accompanying 3D printed info-objectThe topic I chose to explore was the under-representation of the British public within Parliament.

Under-representation is a huge issue causing a disconnect between the public and the Government within the UK, with only 13% of MPs representing BAME and LGBTQ+ communities, as opposed to the 20% this should be to proportionally reflect these demographics - additionally it is to be noted there are no LGBTQ+ POC MPs, nor any who do not identify as cis-gender.

OUTCOME

Both the infographic and object illustrate this demographic imbalance in a visual manner using colour and symbols. This project aimed to shine a light on this issue in order to encourage voters to think about who they want to represent them within Parliament
