The goal of giving form to a complex situation like the credit crisis is to quickly supply the essence of the situation to those unfamiliar and uninitiated. This project was completed as part of my thesis work in the Media Design Program, a graduate studio at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.

We art directed, designed, and developed this infographics piece for Canal Isabel II, the company in charge of Madrid’s water supply.
This piece was part of a six minute video developed by different studios and produced by lalivingston. Our part explains the process cycle water goes through in La Comunidad de Madrid, from collection through to purification.
Based on Michael Pollan's talk "Food Rules" given at the RSA, this animation was created in the context of the RSA/Nominet Trust film competition. Using a mixture of stop-motion and compositing, our aim and challenge was to convey the topic in a visually interesting way using a variety of different food products. We made a little table top set up at home and worked on this a little over three weeks.
Here are also some photos of Michael Pollan's Food Rules in the making
