Another series created for a story while interning at Matter. The story details the enormous swirling gyres sitting in each of our oceans, where all our human garbage collects breaking down and getting into our drinking water and food. To begin, I created a world map to show the locations of the 5 gyres. The tone of the article is fairly dark so I wanted a map that reflected that ominous tone. The infographics that I designed thereafter are meant to keep that stark, dystopian feel, each concerning a facet of this horrible yet widely unknown side effect of consumption.
