Water Is Life

Water Is Life

Educational Poster Contest

The Brief:

Design a poster promoting the importance of water to be displayed in schools using the phrase “Water Is Life” in the image.

The Solution:

I approached this illustration with the knowledge I gained from courses in Science and Biology. The stages of life evolving from single celled organisms up to man are represented in a sequence of ocean waves. Keeping in mind this would be hung in schools to remind children of the importance of water; I made cute engaging animals and used a blue color palette with splashes of brighter highlight colors.

This work placed with-in the top 50 entrants for the contest and was featured on the contests website. I also received a certificate and beautifully bound book containing the top 100 entries.

The Software:

Adobe Illustrator
