EL TRIANGULO

with Kelly Prudente, XD and Hunter Carr, AD 

PROBLEM:

The Northern Triangle, the region made up of Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras, has been rocked by civil wars and violence since the 1980s. It's a crisis that has forced tens of thousands of its citizens to leave their homes in search of a safer life. 

While many seek refuge in the United States, most Americans are unaware of the situation's severity.

SOLUTION:

Give people the opportunity to gain knowledge, build empathy, and humanize migrants seeking safety by building an experience that puts the user in the shoes of a migrant. 

BACKGROUND: 

All situations used in the experience are based on events that have been reported by migrants. 

EXPERIENCE: 

El Triangulo was made with the intent to be difficult. The experience is reflective of the nearly impossible journey that migrants embark on in hopes of a better life. At the end of each experience, people are lead to donate to WOLA, a research and aid organization advancing human rights in the Americas.
