Adeline Ross

Adeline Ross is a graphic designer and aspiring linguist with a passion for aiding and observing humanity in its various pursuits of compassion, respect, and understanding. She believes that the first role of design is to assist in other forms of communication where depth in words will not do, to extend oneself beyond the barriers of linguistic and cultural restrictions to make all audiences feel heard. That any issue, large or small, is often due to a lack of either empathy or understanding.

Who, Like Me, Is Threatened?

In 2014, the Center for Civil and Human Rights opened in Atlanta as a place for education, connection, collaboration and action. By challenging visitors to understand their role in helping others and empowering them to “take the protection of every human’s rights personally,” the museum sheds much-needed light on a variety of global issues and, most importantly, the people experiencing them.

Free Zone

The design brief asked the Second Story team to explore the theme of “time” by imagining a future world based on “plausible present technologies, ideas or milieus.” The temporary installation would live in public spaces along a downtown Atlanta block during “Creative Loafing’s Best of Atlanta” annual party.
