Illustrations for the Oregon Climate Assessment Report

In-class project to design and inject life into the Oregon Climate Assessment Report in a digital format. Our objective was to engage the every-day audience into the scientific and scholarly data about our warming climate through a design approach that is effective and highly resonant. My group’s approach was to focus on detailed illustrations that told the story behind the data, touching on the values of the Northwest and what is being threatened. After collaborating on a website design and overarching concepts, I led the executions of the illustrations to ensure visual cohesion.
