Infographic and Interactive Dashboard

The Hawaiian Monk Seal: Infographic

Task: Design an infographic to explain a complex topic, using a chart feature in Illustrator.

Insight: Many people are unaware of Hawaiian monk seals, which are one of the most endangered marine mammals.

Through a warm and eye-catching design, I aimed to educate an audience who is unaware of the seals entirely, displaying a wide range of educational information. 

The Big Idea: Illustrate and Inform

ROUGH WATERS: INTERACTIVE DASHBOARD

Task: Code and design an interactive dashboard to illuminate a modern issue.

Insight: Many people are unaware of Hawaiian monk seals, which are one of the most endangered marine mammals.

Inspired by their ancient Hawaiian name ‘llio holo I ka uaua, meaning “dog that runs in rough water,” my project ‘Rough Waters’ aims to educate the public on the plight of the Hawaiian monk seal.

The Big Idea: Rough Waters
