Safehouse Disaster Preparedness Kits

Real life is scary enough - prepare for fake life.

The Safehouse Disaster Preparedness Kit is a publication originally produced for an Intermediate Graphic Design class in my third year at the School of the Art Institute as a project centered around creating a cohesive publication brand identity. It has since evolved to be a running yearly publication.

The disaster preparedness kits guide readers through survival tactics for fictional disasters, such as, what to do if you encounter a black hole, or if domesticated animals attempt a hostile take over.

Upon their subscription, readers are mailed a quiz which sorts them into one of four categories: Voyager, Scrapper, Stockpiler, or Sovreign. This determines the contents of their kits. Each kit includes a handbook and various tools to survive the disaster, however, information about the fictional creators of each kit or how to reach them is always redacted. Pictured below is the kit for encountering your doppelganger, made in the Fall of 2018.
