Global Heat Map

A student project. Our brief was to show the effects of global warming, comparing 8 different countries. To challenge myself creatively, I decided to not use a map to show this. This colouration is inspired by the rainbow colours shown in many global warming heat maps. The spiral pattern is representative of the cyclones shown in weather patterns. It’s also for the sake of aesthetics and for getting attention. Even though this graph takes a while to understand, its uniqueness makes the viewer pause to take a look. The end result is shown on 36x24 inches.
