Offshore Drilling

Lead Designer
Prize(s)2nd Place in Print / Print Advertising
Entry Description

I designed a series of posters tackling offshore drilling in the Gulf Coast. The 2010 BP oil spill continues to cause extensive damage to marine and wildlife habitats as well as the Gulf’s fishing and tourism industries. My concept is showing that that drill that turns into a fish hook, continues to “catch” and kill the marine wildlife.
