Canadian Geographic

Editorial | Illustration

The series covers 7 different topics about plastics, all which include one infographic to be printed in the publication, as well as an animated video. These materials were developed for students to learn about plastic use through branded exercises, infographics and videos.





We developed and presented 3 different styleframes to the client. From here, we established a style that would be consistently used across all materials moving forward.

We felt this style it was friendly, fun and versatile.
Here was a more modern, clean-looking style.
Also modern, with different colour options.

Learning Package 1:
7 Types of Plastic

Ever wondered what those numbers on plastic products mean and if they are recyclable? The first package explains just this! I had the opportunity to design the illustrations for the publication and the animated video.

The September/October 2019 issue of Canadian Geographic includes the illustrations I created at Simple Story. It was so exciting getting the opportunity to work on this project and physically hold it in my hands! Check out the video created based on this infographic here!

Learning Package 2:
Hidden Plastics

Find out where plastic is hiding in every day products you are probably using!

The November/December 2019 issue of Canadian Geographic includes the infographic created based on the illustrations.Check out the video created based on this infographic here!

This is an ongoing project. I will make sure to update this page as new packages are released!
