The Carousel of Life

Life is like one ride that we are all taking together - sometimes you're going to think it's the most fun you have ever had and others it might even make you a little sick. This design is inspired by all of the ups and downs that we have along the way and celebrates how you can choose just how much fun to have in your life. It also shows many different people at all stages of their life on one ride together, showing that no matter what you might be going through, there is likely someone that you can turn to for help or support.

What do you think of this design?  What images and thoughts does it conjure up in you and how does it help show the world who you are?  Add to the conversation by commenting below.

Carousels are meant to be fun, but they can also represent the “ups and downs” of life. I immediately noticed how the girl by herself seems to be looking bitterly at the happy couple in the foreground.

The colors and theme work together well. The technique is cartoonish, as is the contents for an agreeable match. The text feels unnecessary as we can see that people of all ages are going in a circle which suggest a life cycle without having to be told. The billowy water colors in the background look very nice next to the sharper, more playful merry-go-round.

I absolutely love the illustrative qualities here and the colors used- the image looks like it could be in a children’s book. It’s very happy and carefree, kind of like the way life should be.
