This project was initially given as a graduate assignment at SVA. The assignment required us to look at the Choking Posters from a different perspective, and make people notice an unnoticeable item.
While brainstorming the idea, I noticed that some of the positions required to save lives, resembled that of a wrestler. To make it more interesting, I decided to customize the themes of the posters to reflect those of our favorite restaurants.
A few years later, I was contacted by Bloomberg News with a request to contribute my designs to a story they where writing about the redesign of the Chocking Poster. Please find the article here:
