Criss Cross is a video-based media company that brings history and conflict to life in a contemporary, kid-centered way. Targeting youth between the ages of 11 and 14, Criss Cross uses a bold visual language, comedy, and humor to engage its young audience.
This project was done as part of my graduate thesis work, in the MFA Design program at School of Visual Arts, NY.
Criss Cross has been designed to launch in India with its initial content focussed on the India-Pakistan Partition. The content portfolio will grow to include other conflicts in South Asia and eventually international subjects such as the Israel-Palestine conflict, the refugee crisis, the civil war in Syria and the North Korea crisis.
