Below the Surface
The Below the Surface text-line awareness campaign was created in 2017 in response to a wave of teen suicides in Colorado Springs. The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Colorado Springs and the Design Rangers creative strategy firm designed this series of posters, cards, stickers and other materials in consultation with eight Pikes Peak area teens. The state was so impressed by the campaign’s success, uniqueness and authenticity that it decided to invest in leveraging the group’s foundational work on a statewide basis.
