Individualism Is

An individual by definition is "someone who is considered a free spirit, a nonconformist, an original, eccentric character, a rare bird, or just something out of the ordinary". The topic of individuality is of interest to me because I’ve always considered those closest to me to have shaped who I’ve become while defining myself as an individual. It is my belief that everyone I’ve ever met has contributed to my being. Those I’ve come in contact with have collectively built my personality, mannerisms, beliefs, and my overall existence. Individualism Is* dissects the notion of individuality and how others define it. Through visual research represented in poster format I bring to light what being an individual means and what being one looks like.
