Set of illustrations made for the Magazine Aire’s section “Cosmopolis”

The simplified graphic nature of this project captures the energy and personality of each the cities such as my home New York, Shanghai and Buenos Aires. I look to this project when considering mapping and urban projects for it’s success in documenting culture in simple graphics. For me. it’s drives home the importance of studying the background of the environment throughly before beginning the design process. In Magazine Aire’s illustrative series, the  pieces execute color and form in a way that I would hope to execute in my thesis project’s survey function. Playful is a key word to my research, where interactive design works to merge the user and the project. Fun illustrations that capture personality such as this project inspire me to continue to develop, research and the cultural cities I hope to involve in my work.
