For this university-based project, we were tasked with creating an infographic based on the theme of 'escape'. For this, I looked at ‘running away’ as a form of escape: Why do we run away? How do we run away? And where do we run to? After exploring several themes related to running away, I arrived at the idea of running away from home, more specifically, the only home mankind has ever known – planet Earth.
My infographic looks at the reasons we might need to leave planet Earth, how do we do it, and where in the vastness of space might we go? Visually, I wanted to keep it simple and restricted, to not deter from the amount of text I felt was necessary to communicate the information. I limited myself to 3 colours and adopted an icon-like simplicity in my illustrations and diagrams.
