Metamorphosis!

Jenel Jyl Braza

Since I was little, I’ve always been into art. It’s been an outlet for me to express my thoughts and feelings. I discovered my love for graphic design in high school and I was amazed that I could emotionally connect with people through design and I decided to pursue it! Arriving at UNLV, I initially aimed to finish as soon as possible, leading me to submit my portfolio for review earlier than I was ready. Although the rejection stung, the overwhelming support from those around me persuaded me to continue persisting towards my dreams. I developed a better mindset to improve my skills and self-confidence in my work. The day I got accepted into the program, it was one of the happiest moments of my life! I don’t regret rushing because that experience helped me come back stronger as a designer and realize that it’s okay to go at my own pace. Reflecting on my journey at UNLV, it was like self-discovery and I’m proud of how far I’ve come. I’m happy with all of the opportunities I was given, all the friends I made along the way, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds!

soulm8s

My goal is to design a marketing campaign emphasizing social support's importance in helping people’s mental health and strengthening relationships.

soulm8s is a heartwarming campaign revolving around the friendship of 5 characters - Shailoh, Ozzy, Uri, Leah, and Makai! Each character has a unique appearance, a lovable personality, and different ways of handling their issues. Despite their differences, they are understanding and will always stay by each other’s sides. The soulm8s campaign encourages individuals to become better “soulm8s” to their friends and loved ones, fostering an environment of empathy and understanding. The campaign’s goal is to ensure that no one feels alone in their struggles with mental illness by teaching that it is okay to reach out when needed and that even the smallest validation message can help your soulm8 more than you can imagine. There is a variety of content to enjoy; Instagram posts, posters, figurines, stickers, and so much more. Let’s learn how to reach out, communicate feelings, and support our soulm8s - #soulm8s4ever!
