The Journey of a Pair of Jeans is the story behind the production of jeans. We used animation and graphics to explain and deconstruct the lifecycle analysis of this common garment. We explore how we can use graphics as a viable alternative to a research paper.
Our research team found the best data available, and our design team transformed that data into awesome graphics. Team effort!
