INFOGRAPHICS / various & miscellanious infographics 

At it's best, design is purposeful and useful. For these, and many other reasons, I love designing infographics. These are a few samples of the infographics I've created throughout the years. 

"Haste Makes Waste" was designed in for my Economics and Ethics of Sustainable Design class. We were asked to look around New York City and find an environmentally un-friendly problem, then design an infographic explaining the issue.

Metrocards are a vital part of life in New York City. However, they are made of non-biodegradable plastic and not currently recycled by the MTA. Although using the subway, or any public transportation, is an incredibly more environmentally conscious way to travel, New Yorkers manage to counteract this by producing incredible amounts of waste.

An astonishing 57% of the 160 million Metrocards printed per year are not recycled. That's a lot of non-biodegradable, petroleum-based plastic piles!

Many of the Metrocards that are lost or thrown away still have a balance, at an estimated total of $52 million each year. This amount could provide 31,000 New Yorkers with food stamps each year. Additionally, the "green fee" charged to consumers who choose to print a new Metrocard (which has since been put into action! yay!) could lead to 34 million less Metrocards printed each year.

An infographic I designed in coordination with Savanna Hoge for a project on the legacy of fur. Looking at fur throughout time, we charted it's transition from a practical item of dress to a luxury good.

The more transparent white tracks the usage availability of fur to "the masses" while the more opaque indicates it is more expensive and largely accessible only to the wealthy.

In Design 4, we were asked "What is important or meaningful to you?" My answer was forgiveness. As part of the final deliverables, I designed an infographic explaining the various forms or stages of forgiveness.
