For the second year project “Breaking the News” the Graphic Design students at Ravensbourne were asked to analyse newspapers and find a back-story with a social, environmental or political angle. Harry Stone decided to focus on coral reefs. Researching different articles and data sets Harry experimented with different forms of data visualisation, particularly using different map designs, trying different angles of the map to show the location of coral reefs.
