Whale Safe

These illustrations were developed for UC Santa Barbara's Benioff Ocean Initiative to address whale-ship collisions in the Santa Barbara channel.

I worked with Morgan Visalli to make some changes to the colours and language to better serve its purpose as supporting graphics on the Whale Safe website.

We started off with a Skype meeting to meet with UCSB researchers, allowing us a chance to learn about Benioff Ocean Initiative's efforts to design a whale detection system.

 

They provided helpful insights on ship strikes and the danger they pose to the local whale population.

During the project development stage, I had the chance to pitch several ideas that could be used to address the campaign's objectives.
