Forest Fire Information Design

For this project, I wanted to compare forest fires in the United states to forest fires around the world. There is no denying that forest fires have been all over the news in the past several years. I wanted to research and demonstrate just how destructive they are. I selected several categories of data that were both specific to the United States and worldwide. The goal of this project was to bring awareness to the destruction that forest fires cause in an interesting visual way.

White Noise

For this project, I wanted to tell a personal story and show the progression of my experience through the illustrations and text. I chose a color pallet that matched with the emotion conveyed in the writing. The main goal of this project was to use visual imagery and text to convey a story.         

Empty Nester

For this project, I wanted to create a mock app targeted at parents whose children no longer live with them. The Empty Nester app allows parents who might have a hard time socializing connect with other people. I wanted to include different categories of interest and set the interface up as a matching app.
