U.N. Crisis

Ever want to know what is discussed in the U.N. when something crazy happens?

The University of North Dakota put together a program to simulate that event shortly after Russia invaded Crimea and tasked me with putting together promotional materials that would reflect the tone.

When I think of an international crisis, I get a sharp sense of urgency, danger, and a lot of hard work ahead. I felt the sharp, contrasting colors brought out the urgency while the grit layer helped give it an impression of the danger many people face.

Tech wise, the piece was clean and simple. The fonts, U.N. logo, and solid colors for the background were all vectors which I then used Photoshop to add a layer of grit to using a hi-res grunge texture and a multiply filter.
