thin ice identifies the small indigenous communities of coastal alaska and the people who are struggling to survive there.

 
 
 

as a former resident of one of those villages, I hold a unique perspective on the severity of this crisis and strive to share that compassion through my design. 

 
 
 
 
 

digital application– I created a hypothetical, informative film about the refugee crisis in alaska supported by an animated title sequence

the research process– I sourced material from the alaska division of homeland security, sundance documentaries, user surveys and in-person interviews

 
 
 

 

the result? a book of visualized information that directly guided my design throughout
