Death’s-head Hawkmoth - This design was about compelling and communicating image and text information on a subject belonging within a visual system. When composing type and images, decisions immediately emerge. This project was all about decisions around hierarchy, scale, proximity, and balance to begin to inform the way information is received. I had to choose an insect and design a series of five informational cards that would serve to introduce an audience to a particular kind of insect. Each card had to highlight a different aspect of the insect. The final design included five cards (5x7) and one package design (for the cards).
Insect of choice: Acherontia atropos. Commonly known as the “Deaths Head Hawkmoth”.
All designs and vectors were created solely in Adobe Illustrator using primarily the pen tool.
