Communicative Design

Our Design Process

The process of creating a solution for a client often involves communicative graphical elements. This flyer explains our process, which is a co-creation of the design and the solution with the client.

Logos

Logo of the Mitigation and Adaptation Research Institute, Old Dominion University, Norfolk, Virginia, USA. The image communicates that the long period of stable sea level is ending and the accelerating sea level rise is creating a large uncertainty about the future.
Logo of the Geohazards Community of Practice in GEO communicates a range of geohazards including volcanoes, landslides, and tsunamis.
The Logo of What to Tell Your 20 Years Old Self? asks this question with respect to what should be told to the young generations about the scientific knowledge we have about the state of the Earth's life-support system and the possible futures humanity might face because of the syndrome of modern global change caused by humanity.

InfoGraphics and Posters

Humanity's Journey. Infographic communicates the rapid and large changes in essential variables of the Earth's life-support system and humanity during the last century compared to the average changes in the Holocene.
The infographics embedded in this poster illustrate the complex relationship between natural hazards and the disasters they may cause depending on the processes they trigger in impacted communities.
This poster utilizes several graphical elements to communicate complex contents in an easy to understand way.
The central graphics is used to link all parts discussed in the poster together and utilize the analog of a human body to communicate the technical concept.

Brochures

The brochure designed as a folder illustrates the rapid and large changes in several variables of the Earth's life-support system and humanity during the last century compared to the average changes in the Holocene.
A brochure introducing the Mitigation and Adaptation Institute (MARI) founded in 2014 at Old Dominion University.

The Community White Paper “Extreme Geohazards: Reducing the Disaster Risk and Increasing Resilience” identifies the risk of a global disaster associate with major volcanic eruption as an underrated risk and provides recommendation how to address and reduce this risk. The project was managed by Tiwah with support from the European Science Foundation.
