Description
This was an infographic student project. I chose to make one about rainforest deforestation, a subject near and dear to me after I studied abroad in Costa Rica and saw the direness of the situation firsthand. All of the elements and typography were hand drawn to create an organic, unique, and calculated look, in the vein of Paula Scher’s hand-drawn maps. I wanted to catch the viewer off guard with the initially playful forms in order for the serious message to be unexpected and thus more jarring.
