Using a sweet tone to tell a sad and serious issue in the ocean.
I was talking with one of my friend about ocean pollution. As a design engineer, she told me that when she did her research in the US, she found that the microplastic problem is one of the most serious problems in marine life I have learned the truth through an article on NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), which lists several most common marine microplastics. Commonly found Plastics cigarette butts, food wrappers, beverage bottles, straws, cups and plates, bottle caps, and single-use plastic bags.Although there have been a lot of designs about environmental issues, I still decided to do something to bring up this issue again, regardless of possible cliche or neglects of real problems.
I propose a web which is set as a “salvage site”, and the visitor will become salvager through four steps: entering the ocean, salvaging dead animals, confirming the death, and continuing salvage.
I don't want to use a very serious or horrible tone to state things about marine plastics, though the serious tone was popular in this kind of design, I think people are a bit tired about that kind of tone. To make it different, the death notice is what I came up with to introduce these dead animals. The anthropomorphic description, with designs of bright colors and wonderful patterns of the underwater animals, gives these animals more " dignity”
