Workbook for a High School in the Lower East Side
Our team had to design a book for a public high school in the Lower East Side in New York, teaming up with a kid from the High School. The topic of the class was Man vs Mob.

Maybe bit depressing (or even the opposite!?)

Idea: the nail, which's sticking out will be forced down to be conform - so be strong!
