For my social issues project, I had to research information about a social issue in the United States. I decided to do an information graphic about substance abuse. This design represents metaphors of abuse and addiction with the use of texture, color and elements throughout.
This graphic provides information on the formation of hail by showing a sequence of the process. I also experimented with creating an organic looking cloud. My attempt was to use the cloud to help draw the audience into the graphic.
This project is my first attempt to create an illustration within a graphic. I picked a topic related to entertainment, such as The Walking Dead, and decided to do a zombie hiding in the shadow of the graphic. This helped to convey a mystic and spooky theme.
This graphic was my first graphic showcasing information that I had researched. I decided to work on a project that could resonate with most of my class, which is student debt. I thought this would make for an interesting topic to discuss between the class when I presented it.
