Design Inspiration

This design is about mental health and how having a guiding light or source of support is invaluable in overcoming difficulties. The dark, rougher seas at the bottom represent the dark feelings of depression. As you move upwards the seas become calmer and lighter, representing recovery and a lift in mood. The light stands as a beacon, providing hope and support when someone is trying to find their way through difficult times, much the way that CLAN Cancer Support does.
