The second part of our brief required us to work in a group and come up with an object that has previously been seen as a 'miracle solution' and come up with a way to design our way out of its continued usage.
After some discussion about which miracle solution to work with, we settled on painkillers, specifically paracetamol and ibuprofen and other such otc drugs. We decided on coming up with a campaign that was mainly information on healthy and natural alternatives to a potentially harmful painkiller. We decided we could come up with a range of posters and stickers with information on alternatives and the damage that painkillers can do to your stomach and body. We figured that if the information was widely available and people were educated on which herbs and teas had the same qualities of a painkiller, they would be less likely to turn so easily to pills and tablets.
