Out of Syllabus
Emotional health and well-being are seen as taboo they've been silent killers in our society. The project focused on replacing stereotypes and misunderstandings amongst adolescents and help them in developing a healthier and inclusive understanding of themselves and the society around them. The student worked on redesigning the notebooks and stationery. An adolescent magazine was designed and introduced to expose them to the idea of emotional health in a non-preachy way. In the future, Out of Syllabus could be the community of students, by students that shares and supports each other to move forward in life together. Out of Syllabus aims to be a platform that helps in a shared sense of bonding, open communication and prevention of the build-up of stereotypes and stigmas early on.
