graphic design, print design, typography
Our second Electronic Design assignment is to create an 8-page booklet with a limited edition feel. It follows on from our previous assignment of print magazine design so I continued with the theme of Japan.
The 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami was one of the most devastating natural disasters to occur in history. Japan's geographic location made it a hotspot for earthquakes, so the exploration of earthquakes, its measurements and its impacts became the subject of this booklet.
I made custom illustrations and infographics using a layered approach to evoke a sense of seismic activity. Earthly paper stocks along with a rubber band (which can be used to simulate shaking) was chosen to further reinforce the theme.
