Project Overview

Inspired by the news events of 2015 each week I created a pictographic symbol to corresponds with the stories that most affected me during the week. This website documents these symbols, with each form serving as a link to the related article.

The process of creating these forms gave me opportunity to use graphic design as a way to understand global current events. It connected me to journalism in a way I couldn’t have predicted. The value of good storytelling became increasingly evident. I was also able to see the ebb and flow of my own media consumption.

Please enjoy reviewing 2015 as documented through these symbols and pictographs.
