Greening São Paulo Concept Map

Client: Geographical Mag

Map design
Additional research

The brief of this small half a page illustration was to create a concept map visualising the planned closing and greening the 3.5 km section of São Paulo’s Minhocão highway to benefit the community living next and even underneath the polluting express high-way.

I worked with the editor Paul Presley to develop the concept map based on his brief and some additional resources from local media. As there was no visualisations of the proposed project the final image depicts artistic vision based on the written information.

The challenge in this project was to create a concept based on very little information in a limited timeframe, but I really enjoyed working on this environment-positive and community focused story.
