Coastal Wetlands

Senior Thesis Project

Designer: Madeline Simpson

My senior thesis project brings awareness to the current destrucition that the LA wetlands are currently facing. In order to give a strong context I went with visual infographics that tells a story about these precious habitats. I focused on the four main issues that are causing the depletion with a true visual representation of a small section of the Delacroix Islands. Below you can see the black portion of each year represented growing larger. This indicates the amount of water to land that is taking place. The first illustration is what the Islands looked like in 2005, the second illustration is 2010, and the last is what the Islands looked like in 2016.
