A Formula One car and some components I’ve made for a “Die Zeit”-infographic. The illustrations show the 2015 version of the car and the parts that were changed or improved for this season.
The four components are: Hybrid engine, air intake, front wing and the multifunctional steering wheel. It took 9 days to build the models.
A quite complex 3D model of the Norwegian Getaway. I build it for the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. I also had to cut several parts open to show the bridge, luxury cabins, normal cabins, crew cabins, restaurants, medical center, waste disposal and laundry. The rooms are not very accurate since there are very few technical information about the ship. But their position in the ship is correct.
A large map of the Frankfurt University. It shows the four main sites and the departments of the university. I made this for a special issue of Die Zeit.
I build the models mainly on basis of Google Maps and the aerial view of Bing Maps. The buildings are quite simple, mainly blocks. But I still needed two weeks put all together.
Two variations of a low energy house. The left one was made for the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung and the right one for the Süddeutsche Zeitung some months later. The illustrations show how to improve the energy-efficiency of old buildings.
Some illustrations I’ve made for a special issue of the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. The issue was dedicated to Natural Gas.
The side view at the top is a part of an infographic about the differences between conventional gas production and fracking. The six low poly illustrations show several new technologies that are related to natural gas.
A large infographic for the Swiss newspaper “Schweiz am Sonntag”. The task was to illustrate some statistical data about the Swiss. For example the cities with the highest percentage of immigrants or the highest population density.
An interactive infographic I’ve done for illustration school some time ago. The task was to create an information-app for the iPad about organ transplantation. The intention of the app was to explain the transplantation process to potential patients. I had to do the part about skin transplantation.
My concept is simple. It’s only one wide scrollable image. I chose this format to illustrate the skins dimension. The image is separated into several sections, each showing the skin during the transplantation process. Each section has an information layer, that explains the current process.
The overview above shows the navigation between the layers. Swiping sideways goes back and forth in the process and tapping shows or hides the information layer.
The first screens show the healthy skin, its protective function and the skin layers. The second pair shows the damaged skin and the risk of infections and fluid loss.
The removal of dead skin is the first step in the transplantation process. To do this, cuts are made along the direction of the skin fibers to avoid permanent scars. After this, the flesh starts to heal and builds up new layers of cells. This area with improved blood circulation is the ideal ground for a skin transplant.
After preparation, the new skin is placed onto the wound and sewed. This skin is usually extracted from your own body. Several cuts avoid an accumulation of blood under the transplant.
To accelerate the healing, the wound is sealed and attached to a vacuum pump. This drains off fluids from the wound and minimizes the risk of infections. If the body accepts the transplant, veins start to grow into it and the long healing process begins.
The final screen shows the nearly healed wound. I intended to show some statistical data about skin transplantation here. I haven’t found much, except the rate for success with and without a drainage.
The sketch of an early concept shows an alternate perspective.
An illustration I’ve made for the “DIE ZEIT”-newspaper. It was for an article about the dispersion of the Celtic culture.
The map shows the most important Celtic communities in Europe. The man illustrates the clothing of a warrior and the houses illustrate a Celtic village. Usually the villages were surrounded by a rampart.
