We had to convey information of a complex subject via using information graphics like diagrams, illustrations and other visualizations. The medium should be a newspaper, we were allowed to choose the topic ourselves.
We decided to address the topic of sustainable living and housing.
In order to convey this complex topic in an understandable way, we decided on the following structure. At the beginning, the topic was to be examined globally; little by little, more and more in detail, until in the end tips and things important for building for the individual reader were to be conveyed.
We visualized the data we collected using mainly bar and pie charts, illustrations and color coding. Thus the different blue variations stand for the sustainable, the orange for the negative.
Additionally a digital extension for the reader should be designed. The reader should have the possibility to scan his newspaper and thus get access to AR content. We created 3D animations with the help of Cinema 4D, which were then used by Adobe Aero. This way we created an AR layer that gives the reader additional knowledge.
