Cyber Bullying Exposed by Digital Design Students

Tomorrow, British Columbians unite against bullies. It’s called Pink Shirt Day, and it’s a symbolic stand against bullying in all its forms – at school, at work, online.

For Digital Design students Paul Belen, Luis Francisco, Felipe Dos Santos, and Tamish Aswani, it’s also launch time for their new initiative, Cyber Aware.

The team developed the entire project – including a logo, tagline, the video you see above, and a website at cyberaware.info - as part of their Information Design course in Digital Design. It’s an incredibly polished project, as you will see… but most importantly, it’s both timely and eye-opening.
