Critical Design infographics projects on show at Science World for Green Month

ScienceWorldCOMDShow-1

A selection of sustainability-themed information design projects by 3rd year communication design students is on display at Science World to coincide with Green Month. The work was undertaken as part of the Critical Design core studio I taught in Spring 2015.

Students conducted research into a range of environmental and sustainability issues to determine their chosen topics, and were encouraged to think broadly about their theme and how to translate it visually using information visualization, illustration, and graphic and information design techniques. The resulting themes are diverse and many touch on sustainability issues relevant to Vancouver; these include oil and alternative energies, lifestyle, household and consumption choices, animal life in BC, and more.

Exhibiting students include:
Daniela Buitrago, Cassie Chuang, Karim Kadi, Megan Kwan, Jodie Lavery, Hyo-Jin Lee, Taysia Louie, Hailey Park, Ji Eun Park, Claudia Pasaribu, Prateeba Perumal, Alejandra Rivera, Kaeley Slaney, and Erin Waters.

The exhibition takes place from April 20 to May 26, 2015.
