Ireland and the Changing Global Foreign Direct Investment Landscape
- Editorial Design
For this paper, I was asked to design a cover that would express the concepts of "trade" and "global investment." It was also requested to include a hand in the design, to allude to the five main points in the paper text. This proved to be an interesting challenge. I tackled this by incorporating the open palm of the hand with an interconnected map, alluding to the trade connections between Ireland and the rest of the world.
When choosing the colour scheme, I selected a contrasting green / blue palette, to give a bold, striking look to the illustration. The interconnected line motif was also carried forward into the layout of the paper.
