Design Inspiration

I have taken inspiration from bold graphic poster designs to try and depict the unique qualities of oil and water, representing one of the most damaging and visible ways humans have impacted our marine environment. The idea is that the viewer will be drawn into the vivid colour combinations in the same way they are drawn into an emotional response when they are presented with an environmental disaster in the media. But the decline of marine eco-systems cannot be distilled into one event; it is gradual and often hidden.
