It’s no secret that racism is a prevailing problem in America. It’s not something that happened overnight it’s a deep-rooted issue. It affects a lot of things, but one of the big things in today’s society would be police brutality. How would you feel knowing you’re more likely to be killed or even harmed by police simply for the color of your skin? I in no way intend to bash police because I know for a FACT that it’s not all police, heck my mom is a detective so I have a lot of internal insight of the workings of a police force. Again this is not intended to bash, I simply want to shed light on facts. People deserve to know the truth about what’s going on.

Extreme sports began their rise to stardom in the mid 1980’s, since they ratings have continued to climb and with it inherent risk. Extreme athletes and daredevils alike push themselves to the absolute limits in the name of insanity despite the risks. Unlike most sports a mistake in an extreme sport most often results in death. This info-graphic was created to shed light on the injuries and fatalities behind extreme sports. The accompanying “Project Truth” image was created to honor the victims of extreme sports accidents using news headlines related to their deaths.

The “True” I inspiration the classic Supreme Logo. The Supreme font used Futura font. White font and red back. I still tried some another color; I put them on the below. Because it is a tidal brand, the color should be bright. Red is very bright, and people can see it at a glance.  The font does not need too many colors. I think one color is enough.

With the development of China’s reform and opening up, more and more Chinese students choose to get a better, higher education abroad. It is known that thousands of Chinese students go to America to get a higher education and the number of them is still increasing every year. However, it is not an easy process to get a good accommodation in an unfamiliar place for an international student, especially when they have totally different languages and traditions. As Yan and Berliner (2009) mentioned in Chinese International students’ academic stressors in the United States that Chinese students are not only one of the biggest groups of foreign students on American campuses, but also one of the international groups that experience greater challenges adapting to the American educational system.
