In the Red Tape

A Fight for More Than $15

Forgotten by Medicaid

The documentaries focused on three individuals who fell through the social safety net in the U.S and experienced economical hardship during the COVID19 pandemic. In the minimalist graphics approach, the geometric shapes represent buildings, and each struggling household becomes invisible in the community.
