Root of all Evil

Root of all Evil

Conceptualized as a design package, the Root of all Evil is a meditation on the malicious influence money has over a human life.

I designed this after the death of Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy, an artist from Florida. I recounted the death of other influencing musicians that I've always admired throughout my life.

The familiarity of the issue is addressed through a crude design language and color. Concerning content, the similarities of the late musicians are tied together by the element of line. Representing death, connection, and fate; the line is seen throughout the zine and poster intersecting each of the featured artists.

An addition to the printed matter, I conceptualized a money clip to further greed's role in the design.
