Meanwhile, in San Francisco

A socially satirical piece of print design addressing recent protests in the Bay Area involving shuttle buses that cater solely to those employed in the tech industry.

This was a design I had assembled in response to the recent protests here in Oakland & in San Francisco.

On the morning of December 9th of 2013, protestors surrounded a Google shuttle bus in San Francisco's Mission District, preventing its departure for around a half an hour.

The shuttle buses catering solely to those employed in the Bay Area's booming tech industry have, for many, become a symbol of tech-fueled gentrification, economic inequality and soaring housing prices in the city as well as neighboring areas.

The effort was repeated on December 20th at MacArthur Bart station in West Oakland.
