Visual Communications for Sustainability

Course project

The project aimed to create a series of infographics to raise awareness of the destination of post-consumer plastics. The infographics were posters and interactive apps that helped people sort and track the plastics that they recycled.

About the course

"We are increasingly surrounded by data, and information is collected and categorized in the smallest of increments. Data on sustainability is no exception. How do we use and present data in a way that is relevant for consumers? In this course students learn about the growing field of information design and critically evaluate how it relates to communicating sustainability. Customized project-based assignments take students deeper into real-life situations."
