"According to CCAD every week two anonymous intruders have been sneaking into classrooms on campus, leaving some cool chalkboard messages with the signature, #dangerdust. It captured the attention of the students and are now shared far and wide through social media.
“It’s definitely a passion,” they agreed.
Both seniors in Advertising & Graphic Design, the two said it’s easy to get stuck in a rut when working on seemingly insurmountable class projects.
“When you’re working on long extended projects for graphic design classes it’s easy to… lose motivation,” they said. “I think we’re tired of the computer, and [chalking] gives us motivation.”
The two didn’t think anything would come of their experiment, but after the first few chalkboard masterpieces took off, one of their professors encouraged them to run with it.
“I remember the first couple [chalkboards] we did, I didn’t think anything was going to happen, [but] people were like, ‘Yeah, I’ve seen that on Instagram!’” they remembered. “We get so giddy over 10 likes on Instagram.”
Dangerdust is now on Twitter, Instagram, tumblr, and behance, where the two share their work, interact with fans, and keep people guessing about their identities.”
