Rebuild by Design (RBD) occupies a space on the edge of government, philanthropy, academia, design, and community working with Hurricane Sandy-affected areas to better understand how to redevelop their communities in environmentally and economically healthier ways and to be better prepared.
The organization commissioned me to create a “supergraphic” or storytelling infographic to be displayed at disaster relief and planning exhibitions around the globe starting with the UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction in Sendai City, Japan in March 2015.

RBD’s process helps other cities rethink resilience before disaster strikes. It was important to connect the organization’s effective process over the timeline of unfolding events. Collages of compelling photography alongside data points tell the complex story in digestible form. My design was deemed the first successful graphic to do just that. This was designed to be a large-scale 12′ x 5′ exhibition board and may also be scaled for handout form.
