The way someone presents themselves to the outside world is very rarely indicitive to the tribulations they are facing or have overcome. After checking in on a friend I was reminded we never truly know what someone is going through or what they're struggling with in life. It was in hearing her life experience along with my own that inspired the design for this tag to be a visual metaphor as a way of communicating person experience or support without words.
I chose to depict Tod from the Disney movie "Fox and the Hound". Tod is a beloved character who's story has made him a symbol of bravery, resilience, and the enduring power to not give up.
The colors used to create the ombre backgound were chosen to represent an awareness ribbon. Awareness ribbons are symbols meant to show support or raise consciousness for a cause. Teal and purple awareness ribbons are used to represent a variety of important causes, when used together, these awareness ribbon colors are used to symbolize those affected by domestic violence, sexual assault, or suicide.
Purposly choosing to combine these two seperate elements has allowed me the ability to create a design which represents a powerful meaning in an unexpected way.
For each "TOD THE FOX" tag that is sold, 15% of the proceeds to will be donated to ECLI-VIBES, a not for profit human services agency. Their mission is to empower survivors of violence, abuse, and crisis through the numerous programs and services they provide. This organization that was selected in collaboration with the friend who's story motivated my inspiration. It is one that we both support who's ability to make a difference in someones life is pround as I know this firsthand from the impact they made personally in my life.
