Archipelagos Institute Of Marine Conservation

Graphic designer/Media team supervisor

My primary goal was to launch, raise and promote awareness about Archipelagos’ research and conservation work towards the environment, both locally and around the Mediterranean. I was required to work closely with marine and terrestrial scientists in order to successfully communicate key messages and create impactful designs. This required a combination of knowledge of subject matter, understanding ethical, cultural, and political values, and an understanding of who is viewing the artwork to cultivate custom visual solutions for communication needs.
