I am Ajit Johnson, a Ph.D. student working in cancer genetics and genomics, and when I am not deconvoluting the complexity of cancer (or at least that’s what I tell myself), I love telling stories through my graphic design artworks to spread love, hope, and encouragement.

It was one of those unproductive days when I realized that I look at my phone or open social media web pages far too long than needed, which inspired me to take up the challenge of not using my phone for a day. It was extremely difficult, but very soon I realized, how much more productive I can get and how much time I had, which I thought never existed.

#This_Generation is a set of minimal poster designs that I designed to emphasize the need to acknowledge tech addiction invasion without even being aware of it. The use of modern technology is, of course, fun and extremely useful, but blinding oneself of the dark side (cyberbullying, privacy, etc.…) can be equally dangerous. Also, spending much time plugged in affects our relationships and creates plenty of social issues, studies say.

Anyway, being guilty of many of these cool posters myself, I hope this series gets the message across in a hilarious manner. Now let me go Snapchat a selfie.

Hey, you can't complain about this; getting a selfie of yourself with the grim reaper and managing to post it as a profile picture would be just about the most epic thing you could do before you die.

This one is actually not so bad. It's a time saver. Some people work better when taking notes alone and at their own pace, while browsing those blackboard photos, than when they can't concentrate on the class and the teacher's explanations, being too busy to write everything down before everything gets erased.

Teen pregnancies have dropped with this generation actually. That's because of education and living in a more liberal world.

I've had that very same idea. Maybe the phone wouldn't work at all if near the steering wheel or something similar to that.

This is truth. Kids are alert more for their social profile status instead of other things.

I say it's fine to watch sports electronically if you don't have the time or money to watch from a stadium.

This is more of the fact that even with a full time job no one can find a house or even afford an apartment

because someone decided that they can stop what they're doing to talk to you when you're a 1000 miles away.
