'Stay at home' 

I collaborated with my long-time family friend - “Aunty” - Rehana. Rehana is of Pakistani descent and her mother tongue is Urdu. In creating my poster, I found it frustrating that Adobe CC doesn’t have Unicode support for many languages including Urdu, meaning the characters became jumbled as I worked. So instead, I asked Rehana to write out the text, which I then scanned. Celebrating her handwriting made the poster all the more meaningful given that women’s literacy rates in Pakistan sit at less than 47%.
