Fcking Compost


Illustrator | InDesign | Photoshop

Composting is badass and cool, but it's never portrayed that way. How, then, will you convince someone who isn't inherently interested in the process, do it? As a means to counteract the tree-hugging, 'crunchy' stereotype with which composting is often associated, this PSA campaign borrows heavily from the Pop Art and Punk/DIY movements. Pop Art is often linked to popular and mass culture, and Punk to anti-establishment and rebellion. My goal with this campaign was to suggest how composting is at once rebellious and an a habit befit for the masses.

Color Palette

The silkscreens produced by Andy Warhol, notably his flowers and portraits of Marilyn Monroe, provided the inspiration for Fcking Compost's color palette. I wanted to stray as far from natural and 'earthy' tones as possible. By using a Pop Art-themed palette, I hope to reinforce to the viewer that composting can be a mainstream practice.
